Today many of you will be playing some iconic '90s games thanks to the launch of the SNES Classic Edition.

So let's say you've managed to get your hands on one of the highly coveted new SNES Classic Mini systems. Eventually, everyone who wants a SNES Classic will get one.

How unbelievable is the Super Nintendo - with games like Super Mario World, Mario Kart, Starfox, Donkey Kong Country, it's loved by an entire generation of gamers.

To search for SNES Classic stock at your local stores, you need the SKU, UPC or DCPI number of the SNES Classic for each store. Not only does it compile some of the greatest games of all-time, but it also has the previously-unreleased Star Fox 2.

Although the toy retailer didn't offer preorders for the Super NES Classic, it will be selling the console in stores on launch day. While not the company's biggest-selling console of all time, it was the victor of that generation of gaming consoles, outselling the Sega Genesis by nearly 20 million units thanks to stronger graphics and a lineup of games that included several featuring Mario and Donkey Kong.

However if you would like to try your chances at purchasing a new SNES Classic online. Less than 24 hours after the official release of its sequel miniature console, users have found that Hakchi2 also works with the SNES Classic.

The SNES Classic Mini will feature 21 games.

The SNES Classic release date is 29 September for both Europe and the US.

Below you can find a list of retail stores that carry the SNES Classic.

All versions come with two wired controllers. There are no details on how many games they have in stock.

Star Fox 2 was completed decades ago, but not officially released until today. Gamestop was getting limited numbers of the system, so there's no guarantee you can nab one, but if you've got a store near you it might be worth checking.
