It comes loaded with 20 plus classic Super NES games, including versions of Super Mario, the Legend of Zelda, and Donkey Kong. The SNES Classic is extremely popular and absolutely selling out at retail locations, but according to those out to buy it, if you made a timely effort to go and get the console it generally wasn't too hard to find a store with the SNES Classic in stock. But the good news is that we're here to help you navigate through all the nonsense and find a SNES Classic without wasting the whole day.
