Where to Buy NES Classic Mini Console in Canada

Where to Buy NES Classic Mini Console

The NES Classic Edition Mini Console gaming system offers nostalgic entertainment for the grownups and is still great fun for the kids. With 30 classic retro games built in and a price point of $79.99 it's no surprise that this system is in high demand, even though it's been on the market for a while now.

Hard to find in stock, we've been combing through different retail sites and stores to find it for you. Unfortunately, there aren't many options currently available, but we will keep checking and updating as this changes.

Here's what we've found:

Limited Stock/Higher Prices

Currently Out of Stock

Walmart.ca had the NES Classic Edition but it quickly sold out and we're not sure when it will be back. It is also currently unavailable at Best Buy, E.B. Games, The Source, and Toys R Us.

  • Steven S.

    Christmas gift idea if available

    • Steven S.

      Yes lol if it's not pricey. It's the best classic system ever!

    • Christine U.

      Being released Nov 11th.....whenever an electronic is released it's usually difficult to get but will give it a try.

  • Charlene G.

    . I am getting this then having a championship gaming night!

    • Stephanie L.

      And i shall conqor all!!! Bwahahah

  • Shannon D.

    • Sarah G.

      Any electronic store will carry them but they haven't received a preorder date yet

  • Kathleen C.

    put this on your list for Santa!

  • KaylaS

    AMAZING!! Nostalgia central :) I'm excited about this old gaming console reinvention and even more so as a Christmas gift idea. This was what I grew up with and I still have the original Nintendo gaming console with probably close to 100 different games...blowing into the game cartridges to allow proper function required. 30 games and a mini console at that price point is a great idea and so much better! Forget about the kids, I may just have to buy this for myself and my husband - lol!

  • Jordanna

    any luck finding a pre-order on these yet?

  • Jessica2

    Any idea which stores it will be available in?

    • Paula1963

      EB Games for sure, it's up on their web site.  Hubbie will be lining up tomorrow.  Most stores will have 20-30 units only.

  • linxjp

    Best Buy is launching online sale around midnight tonight. Apparently stores will have some stock too (limited).

  • KaylaS

    Any updates to this post considering the supposed release date is already tomorrow? I never heard about any pre-order stores or dates either :(

    • kritafo

      just got my order confirmation on EB Games.. just kept reloading the page it eventually showed up. Walmart in store 7 am tomorrow and Bestbuy 1 am PST online

    • Eryn

      There were no pre-orders, and we will update as we see stock made available. These are going to sell out FAST at each location.

  • Leah W.

    And, it's sold out online. And not in any stores.

    • Kirsten K.

      It says it is in stock at 1 out of 4 of my local Walmarts.

  • Bargainmoose

    That sold out fast but we have updated our post for you to keep checking on stock at various retailers! Good luck everyone! :)

  • Lindsay K.

    Eb games has them online keep refreshing just bought one...

    • Bargainmoose

      I will mention that as well in our post, thanks for that tip!

  • Lindsay K.

    Thesource.ca also has them online. Need to refresh the out of stock keeps updating.

    • Bargainmoose

      I am going to edit this into our post. I also keep refreshing now and am not having success, but maybe... (fingers crossed for everyone!) Thanks for the tip!

    • Lindsay K.

      Got mine about 25 mins ago. I refreshed for 20 mins before i got it.

  • kritafo

    That is what we did, refreshing the pages constantly.  I got one  then 20 mins later my daughter called and got one.  

  • Eryn

    Thank you everyone, for your helpful comments! Refresh, refresh, seems to be the key.

  • Crystal P.

    Would of loved to have bought one but I add it to my wish list hopefully comes back in stock :grinning:

  • Robin K.

    Thanks lady! Looks like I missed them all lol

  • linxjp

    Our Walmart here had a fair number of the classic's in stock, enough to satisfy the line that formed out front (about 15 people). I believe there were around 20-30 units.

    Controllers, they only received two, but should have more pretty quick.

  • KaylaS

    Amazon.ca stated it was going to have this mini NES console system available for the regular $79.99 at exactly 2pm PST, so just moments ago... I noticed when it was available the instant it happened but no matter how many times I added it to my cart, my cart was always empty or it had disappeared. There is no way they were actually properly available if I was not able to get one being on at the exact moment, unless they had some extremely low amount of units for sale. What a joke... The amount available at any given store and online is a disaster and baffling with Nintendo knowing the hype for this nostalgic item. The Amazon reviews are dismal as the controller cord is very short and with scalpers reselling units for upwards of an astronomical $500 each, when the unit is barely worth the $80 price point. I'm more than fine to wait and buy it when readily available at the normal price, which it's apparently going to be before the holiday season, according to Nintendo.

  • kritafo

    apparently shoppers drug mart had them in store.  I have a couple of friends that picked them up.

    • KaylaS

      Same goes for London Drugs, which I was unaware of as they don't even have an online liisting for the product. Apparently they only got a very small amount in stock and were sold out within 20minutes or so, once people realized what it was and that it was for sale... It seemed there was little or no advertising which seems ridiculous when so many of us are searching everywhere and random customers just stumbled upon the item. What is even more baffling is my local The Source 'electronics' store didn't get any in and have no plans to in the near future, according to a manager. Very strange. 

      • kritafo

        i had no idea London Drugs had them I was there yesterday looking.  I have one need another for my nephew I might just have to wait for his Jan birthday.  I refurse to pay more than in store prices. 

  • Rebecca D.

    I was lucky to buy two from Best Buy. I sold one and kept one..

  • Natasha W.

    never gonna get my hands on one!!

    • Ryan B.

      Nope they're selling out like everywhere lol

  • Tiggrr

    I was up at 3am (12am PST) on Nov 11th to buy one. I went back in at 3:05 to see if there were any more available and they were sold out. I hope that they have more stock available so most people who want one for Christmas can get it. My problem will be leaving it in the box now until Christmas ;) 

  • Terri-lynn B.

    We were a couple days early.....

  • Laurie H.

    so at 5 do i just click the link to walmart and it will be thereÉ

    • Laurie H.

      walmart signed me out and i had to resign in and then it was gone

    • Bargainmoose

      it went so quickly!! Hopefully there will be more to come.

  • Nicole M.

    Sold out in seconds flat!

  • Erin L.

    I just get "item not available near you" :cry:

  • Kate A.

    :pensive: had it in my cart, went to pay and it was gone! Too bad!

    • Bargainmoose

      Oh I know! They sold out SO quickly. Let's keep our eyes peeled for more!

  • Frank S.

    Lol. Just wait it will be available soon. Or just go on ebay and spend a grand for it.lol

  • KaylaS

    umm the American Walmart site referral now states that the NES console listing is priced at a whopping $250!! I cannot believe Walmart can price gouge and take advantage of an items popularity like that sky rocketing the price like that. How disturbing for a huge company to try and profit so hugely from holiday shopping in such a disgusting way.

    • Jenfus

      that is not from Walmart look it's shipped from independent seller , same thing for hatchimals . 

  • Chrystal L.

    how much are these where you are?

    • Chrystal L.

      Wow thought they would be cheaper there. Thanks Steve:relaxed:

  • Michael K.

    Nintendo always finds a way every Christmas lol

  • jaimeb
