If you ordered the NES Classic online from Toys R Us, there might be some bad news because the retailer is starting to cancel some orders.
Wario64 posted an email he received from Toys “R” Us via Twitter. It sounds like orders for the NES Classic won’t be able to be fulfilled in a timely manner, so they are cancelling them.
The email said: “We are reaching out regarding your recent order which had you previously received notification was being delayed awaiting additional inventory.
