Looking for Nintendo’s Super NES Classic Edition for the holidays? Try your local Best Buy this Saturday, Nov. 25. The retailer said in a press release today that it will have “limited quantities” of the SNES Classic in Best Buy stores across the United States.

Best Buy stores will open at 9 a.m. local time on Saturday, and the SNES Classic will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Here’s how that will work, per Best Buy:

The Super NES Classic Edition will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. 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.

We will only pass out as many tickets as we have systems available, with a limit of one per customer. Super NES Classic Edition will not be available on

Nintendo launched the SNES Classic in September, and while getting your hands on the miniature console at launch wasn’t as hard as it was for its predecessor, the NES Classic, it’s not like the system has regularly been in stock since then. (Hence why Best Buy is making a big deal out of getting more stock.)

Don’t expect any Black Friday/Cyber Monday-style deals on the console, which costs $79.99 and comes with 21 preinstalled games.
