If you missed out on the first batch of SNES Classics, then good news: GameStop will have another batch of the miniature retro consoles this week. The bad news? The company isn’t really giving exact details as to where or when you’ll be able to pick one up, so it’s still a bit of a crapshoot as to whether or not you’ll get one.

Here’s what we do know, though:

  • In-stores: GameStop (and ThinkGeek, which GameStop owns) stores will have individual SNES Classic units available, with stores starting to receive shipments today, and guaranteed to have stock between now and Thursday, October 12th. Since GameStop doesn’t let you check stock of the SNES Classic online, you’ll have to call (or physically visit) your local store to see if they have any.
  • Online: GameStop and ThinkGeek will also be selling the SNES Classic online again sometime tomorrow, October 11th. The company isn’t saying when exactly to expect it, but unlike last time — when the online stock of consoles were only available in pricey bundles — GameStop will be offering SNES Classics as both bundles and standalone units.
