The holidays are fast approaching and people can't wait to get their hands on the NES Classic Edition. The video game console is coveted by gamers but it can be difficult to find. Latest reports, however, suggest that major retail stores will replenish its stock.

The first hot offer comes from Amazon Prime Now and as reported, the retail giant has started the NES Classic Edition sale. But the offer comes with a catch: only select U.S. cities. Given that the NES Classic Edition console sells like hot cakes, gamers should act fast if they want to buy one.

Amazon may not have set a limit for orders, but there are just so many people hunting for the Classic Edition and the stock could run out fairly quickly. Select cities that can enjoy Amazon Prime Now's offer on NES Classic Edition are Washington, DC.;Raleigh, North Carolina; Richmond, Virginia; Tampa, Florida; Orlando, Florida; Miami, Florida; Virginia Beach, Virginia; Baltimore, Maryland; and Atlanta, Georgia.

If Amazon Prime Now doesn't work out, there's another option. Fortune reported that the NES Classic Edition will once again be on sale on Best Buy. Shoppers can get the chance to have one starting on Dec. 20, as confirmed by a spokesperson for the retail giant. Customers should also note that Best Buy will only offer the NES Classic Edition on a "first-come, first-served basis" since the units are only limited. Additionally, this offer is only available in stores and not online.

The NES Classic Edition is a replica of the original gaming system from 1985 that brings nostalgia to players who once enjoyed games with low quality graphics. The game system features a library of 30 classic games including "The Legend of Zelda" and "Super Mario Bros." On Nov. 10, the video game console sold for $60, but quickly ran out of stock.
