Heck yes, I am going to say more! Gamers, I’m talking to you. Get excited because the highly-anticipated SNES Classic is hitting shelves at Toys“R”Us stores nationwide this Friday, September 29. I repeat, THIS FRIDAY! Best part? No preorder required.

With the same look and feel as the original ‘90s home console, the SNES Classic is pure 16-bit retro gaming perfection. Differences from the original? This new version of the system is miniature and comes pre-loaded with 21 of the all-time greatest games. Think: Super Mario Kart and the never-before-released Star Fox 2. Gamers can just plug in, play and enjoy hours of throwback fun.

We definitely know a hot product when we see one, that’s why we featured the SNES Classic on our 2017 Hot Toy List.

Since this product is so *hot*, we anticipate tons of loyal customers heading to local stores on Friday. A couple of things to keep in mind on launch day: our stores will open at normal hours (9AM local time) and quantities of the console are limited. If you’re hoping to score, plan to get in line bright and early – emphasis on early.
