The SNES Mini was almost impossible to get hold of late last year as Nintendo’s production line turned into yet another omnishambles. If you managed to avoid temptation on over-priced eBay units though, your time has come today as we’re seeing multiple reputable retailers stocking the tiny retro console at the RRP of £69.99.
Don’t let other retailers pull the wool over your eyes with their ‘offers’. Some are charging the re-invented RRP of £79.99, and Game is selling it for that price and pretending it’s an offer down from a non-existent price of £99.99. Tut and indeed, tut.
With newfound stock available at so many retailers now, you might be tempted to hold out for a genuine discount off the £69.99 RRP, but that could end up being a bit of a gamble if Nintendo isn’t set on producing many more units. We’ve listed the current retailers below stocking the SNES Mini at the proper £69.99 price if you don’t want to risk missing out on this classic piece of gaming history.

Very.co.uk is an increasingly popular option for many UK shoppers. There’s even an option to save 20% on the price here by using the voucher code LXJUL at the checkout when opting to buy via a credit order for the first time instead. We’d advise paying it off as soon as possible though as to avoid paying any interest. There’s a banner explaining the details once you click through.
The rumour machine is really starting to make some noise about a potential N64 Mini next – hopefully, Nintendo won’t be so stingy on the production line. If that does get announced though, expect production of the SNES Mini to stop, if it hasn’t already.
