Where to Buy the Super NES Classic Edition in Canada

Where to Buy the Super NES Classic Edition in Canada

By Simon Hung

The Super NES Classic Edition is officially available on Friday, September 29 and the little console has generated an incredible amount of buzz worldwide. It’s one of the most-anticipated products this fall and slated to be a very popular gift this holiday season -- if you can get your hands on one.

The SNES Classic is available September 29 and includes 21 classic games.

Pre-orders at Best Buy, EB Games and London Drugs were snapped up within minutes and we saw RFD collectively go through the five stages of grief when pre-orders spectacularly flopped at The Source. Plus, contrary to initial reports, the SNES Classic will be made available in Quebec, which means the console will be even more sought after once released.

To help with your search, we’ve listed stores that will most likely have them for sale, along with direct product links, if available. We’ll continually update this list as we approach the launch date with new developments, so check often to see an up-to-date list of stores.

Nintendo has promised to produce supply of the SNES Classic into 2018 (and revive the NES Classic Edition), but you’ll want to shop as soon as possible if you want the best chance to guarantee one for yourself, as supplies will be very limited across all stores. Happy hunting!

    • I managed to purchase one from Best Buy at 12PM exactly. Good luck to those who want to relive their childhood and the opposite to the opportunists who plan on reselling it.

    • Ordered from Wal-Mart. Just got an email to say item is out of stock. Payment hasn't gone thru. Says will cancel if item is not in stock within 3 days. WTF? I clicked on it when it said in stock. Added to my cart and checked out. Now this.

    • If you didn't get an email from walmart right away there's a good chance your SNES is on backorder. You'll probably get a followup email that says something like this:

      "We have run out of items in your order, and these items will be delayed.

      We're working with our suppliers to get you these items as soon as possible. We will update you as soon as we know when your order will be ready.

      Any items that are unavailable to be shipped in the next 3 days will be automatically cancelled from your order."
