As the holiday season comes to an end, so will the craze for the NES Classic Mini, which is still hard to find in online stores nationwide. The classic mini Famicom sold out a few days after it was launched in November. Now, fans are willing to seek high and low just to get the opportunity to snag one. Just before Christmas, Amazon, Best Buy, Target Australia and many more online stores offered the NES Classic for a limited time only. Still, many fans weren?t able to get one.

Now, the NES Classic Mini Famicom is re-emerging at the Play Asia store. Originally priced at $60 per unit, Play Asia is offering the mini gaming platform for $129.99 per unit. If you live outside the United States, don?t worry, Play Asia delivers worldwide. Take note that the NES Classic available at the Play Asia store is the Japanese version.
