As promised, Nintendo is bringing back the NES Classic Edition after a brief discontinuation period. The mini-console will be available at stores beginning June 29, the company announced on Twitter.

“This system and the SNES Classic Edition system are expected to be available through the end of the year,” said Nintendo in a tweet.

The NES Classic Edition will cost $59.99 upon its return, just as it did when it launched in November 2016. The list of games included on the console will also stay the same; among those are classics like Super Mario Bros., Donkey Kong and Pac-Man.

Nintendo halted production of NES Classic Edition systems in April 2017, mere months after the highly coveted system went on sale — and quickly went out of stock, even after additional shipments hit stores. But Nintendo reversed course in September of last year, stating that it would re-release the NES Classic Edition in increased numbers the following summer.

Meanwhile, SNES Classic Edition has remained readily available since its launch in late September 2017. But now, collectors will be able to have the complete mini-console set on their hands.
