Nintendo has announced that due to the “incredible demand” for their upcoming Super NES Classic Edition throwback console re-release, they’re pushing shipments for the product into next year, forgoing their planned late 2017 schedule of shipments.

The company promised that more Super NES Classic Edition units will ship on launch day than NES Classic Editions were shipped for the entirety of last year, with more shipments to hit stores regularly.

They also confirmed that the NES Classic Edition will be returning to stores sometime next summer, with new shipments. Further details are coming at a later date.
