SNES Classic Availability: Best Buy, Nintendo Store To Sell Console This Weekend.

The Saturday after Black Friday will offer another chance at getting an SNES Classic because the elusive Nintendo console will be at Best Buy.

The company ( just announced that it will carry the console, a miniature version of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System that came out in 1990, in limited quantities and will sell them on a first-come, first-served basis on Nov. 25. If you want a SNES Classic, you might have to line up early, before the stores open at 9 a.m.

"Our stores will offer a ticketing process before we open for customers waiting in line - the same ticketing process we'll offer for the Saturday doorbuster deals," the company explained. "We will only pass out as many tickets as we have systems available, with a limit of one per customer."

The SNES Classic will be available in stores only, not on the Best Buy website.

It has been difficult for a lot of people to get their hands on the throwback console because it is in such high demand and quickly sells out at the locations where it's being carried. But if you miss out at Best Buy on Saturday and live within a reasonable distance from Nintendo's New York City location in Rockefeller Center, every day will offer a new chance to get your hands on one. That Nintendo store recently announced on Twitter that starting on Black Friday it would have a limited supply of the SNES Classic each day until further notice, also selling them on a first-come, first-served basis.

The console comes with 21 classic games, including titles like Super Mario World, Super Mario Kart, the Legend of Zelda, F-Zero, Street Fighter II, Donkey Kong Country and Star Fox. It also comes with two controllers and the game Star Fox 2, which was previously unreleased.

Nintendo previously sold an NES Classic Edition, a miniature tribute to the Super Nintendo's predecessor.

The SNES Classic is being sold for $79.99.
