Christmas is certainly coming early for Nintendo fans hoping to get their hands on the new NES Classic, which is officially on sale today (November 11)…that is, if they’re willing to fight for one of the systems.

First announced in July, the miniature NES Classic Edition — which can literally fit in consumers’ hands — retails for $59.99 and comes equipped with 30 preloaded classic games like Castlevania and Super Mario Bros. In anticipation of today’s big release, retailers like the New York City’s Nintendo Store, Target and and Walmart began accumulating lines hours before the stroke of midnight, and gamers far and wide have been sharing their 8-bit-worthy journeys.

“We wanted to give fans of all ages the opportunity to revisit Nintendo’s original system and rediscover why they fell in love with Nintendo in the first place,” Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime said upon the system’s original announcement. “The Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition is ideal for anyone who remembers playing the NES, or who wants to pass on those nostalgic memories to the next generation of gamer.”
