Here’s how you can finally get your hands on Nintendo’s NES Classic

It’s easier than you would think!

Everyone’s chasing after Nintendo’s NES Classic, a.k.a. childhood nostalgia in the form of a console, but it’s been nowhere to be found since launch day. Fortunately, several retailers are throwing gamers a bone. 

ThinkGeek is approaching things a little differently than usual by offering shoppers a chance to add the NES Classic to their wishlists until Monday, Dec. 12 10 a.m. ET. After that, batches of fans will be selected and sent an access code to buy the console, which they will need to redeem in 24 hours in order to secure their order. 

Amazon’s also getting in on the hype, tweeting this on Tuesday:

So if you’re yearning for the Nintendo NES Classic this holiday season, tell someone who loves you to get their name on that wish list. In the meantime, keep your ear to the ground for any Amazon developments! 

Get on the wish list now.
