The NES Classic has been one of the hottest gadgets previous year, and for those who missed out the first time it has been released, here's a second chance to get it. Nintendo has just announced that they are bringing back the throwback console to store shelves starting June 29.

The $59.99 console will be available through the end of the year, Nintendo announced in a tweet, and includes vintage games like "Donkey Kong", "Super Mario Bros".

Now we know the release date for the Nintendo NES Classic Edition in Canada and the U.S., as the units will hit retailers on June 29, 2018.

Both mini consoles were originally released in such small numbers that hungry consumers crashed websites trying to get their hands on one.

Its sequel, the Super Nintendo Classic Edition, will also be available for purchase through the end of the year.

Nintendo previously promised that there will be a NES Classic Edition restock this summer, and it looks like the company will keep its word.
