Milk that cow, Nintendo.
Nintendo has again made plans to re-release the incredibly popular NES Classic Edition console. On June 29, the console will once again be available in stores.

The $59.99 NES Classic Edition console saw sales top 5 million units when it was first re-released in 2016. The product page already reflects the new launch date. Each NES Classic comes preloaded with 30 NES games and an NES Classic Controller.
If you’re planning on purchasing a retro Classic Edition, do so on June 29. These are typically released in small numbers, so get to those stores early. Otherwise, you might have to dig a little bit deeper in your pockets. One look at Amazon.com will show just how expensive these things become once Nintendo is no longer supplying them.
