The NES Classic Edition was a bit of a disaster. While the system sold incredibly well for Nintendo, there were a handful of issues that truly hurt it in the eyes of consumers. Fortunately, the company seems to have learned at least a couple lessons for the SNES Classic Edition.

Infamously, the NES Classic Edition was not available for preorder in North America. While we don’t know if the situation will be the same this time around, some European outlets have already opened preorders. Hopefully, North America will follow suit. Regardless, the company claims that the console will be in much more plentiful supply this time around. Specific numbers haven’t been released but Nintendo says they “will produce significantly more units of Super NES Classic Edition than we did of NES Classic Edition.”

Another problem that many found with the NES Classic Edition was the controller cable length. The console’s controllers featured a three-foot cord, leading many fans to seek extender cords from third parties. This time around, the SNES Classic Edition will feature controller cords that extend five feet, making it easier to play from the couch.

It remains to be seen whether or not the SNES Classic Edition will truly surpass the NES Classic Edition, but for now, these are certainly signs that point towards a better outlook.
