Dec. 05--This weekend, the latest shipments of NES Nintendo Classic will make its return to select store shelves, but as before, the amount of consoles will be short and the lines to purchase will be long.

Toys R Us is using their supply of the popular gaming console to headline their Great Christmas Sale, which begins on Sunday and runs through Dec. 10. Along with the NES Classic, Toys R Us will also release their shipment of Hatchimals.

Additional stores, such as Walmart, Jet, and Gamestop have also announced they will have NES Classic systems available for sale during the weekend, but have yet to announce an official release date.

Walmart currently has NES Classic for sale on their website, but the retail giant has marked up the price to $299.

NES Classic has been one of the hottest electronics in 2016. The pint-sized version of the original Nintendo Entertainment System comes pre-loaded with 30 classinc NES games, including Super Mario Bros., Techmo Bowl, Pac-Man and more.

During its initial release, stores sold out of the console in minutes. NES Classic has been available on third-party sites, such as eBay and Amazon, with prices starting at $250. The console's retail price is $59.99.

All GameStop locations in Springfield witnessed customers waiting for hours for the store to open and they could get their hands on the system.

"Due to the amount the systems we receive from the supplier, we will release the systems in small amounts for the forseeable future," said Kyle Stevenson, GameStop's Public Relations Coordinator.

Each GameStop location only sold six units during its initial release and it appears that selling a small supply of units is the business model GameStop will continue to do.

GameStop declined to comment on how many systems would be available in their Springfield locations or what day they would be made available. "Customers should keep checking on our website or call to the stores," Stevenson said.

Toys R Us has not announced how many systems they will have on Sunday.
