Nintendo's mini NES is out today

Childhood nostalgia incoming.

You may want to ready your wallets and your mouse-clicking fingers for the NES Classic's launch today. Some fans who attended the midnight event at Nintendo's New York offices were already able to get one, but don't worry: you can grab your own from several retailers. Amazon, for one, has sent out emails informing customers that it'll start selling the retro-console in "very limited quantities" starting at 2PM PT/5PM ET later. The online shopping giant warns that it expects demands to be high and that "there's no guarantee that it will remain in stock for long." If you're looking to buy from Amazon, make sure to bookmark the device's page and set an alarm.

Amazon isn't the only place where you can grab a NES Classic, though. Best Buy and Target have product pages up and running, but both websites indicate that you can only get a unit in store. You'll have to go to one of the big-box stores' locations to actually buy the device. GameStop's website wouldn't let us put one in our virtual cart either, but you can try ringing up a brick-and-mortar outlet to ask if they have any for sale. In the UK, stores have little to no stock and marketplace sellers are already offering the console at more than double its recommended retail price.

The NES Classic is a tiny version of the old console we're sure a lot of you played as kids. It comes pre-loaded with 30 games, including several Super Mario Bros., Final Fantasy and Zelda titles. And, yes, you can save so you can pick up where you left off later. The console will set you back $60/£50, but since it only comes bundled with one controller and you can buy another separately, you may have end up spending a bit more money than that.
