Now Playing: All 30 Games in the NES Classic Edition

With just days to go before Christmas, people in the market for a NES Classic Edition console are running out of time if they want it in time for the holiday.

The system remains sold out basically everywhere, but GameStop shoppers have a chance at getting the hard-to-find system today and tomorrow. The retailer has announced that it will have a limited number of units in stock until Thursday, December 22, in-store only.

"GameStop has again received another limited shipment of Nintendo NES Classics today through Thursday," the store said in a statement to Polygon. "Only available in store, not online. GameStop recommends that customers call their local stores to determine local quantities."

Go to GameStop's website to find a store near you.

The $60 NES Classic Edition system launched in November and quickly sold out. Nintendo says retailers are getting new shipments all the time, but the system remains sold out almost everywhere. More than 196,000 units were sold in the US in November, according to the NPD Group.

It comes with 30 games, including some of the console's best ones such as Super Mario Bros., Donkey Kong, The Legend of Zelda, and Pac-Man.
