Classic Mini NES going back into production, Nintendo confirms

Nintendo Increases Inventory of Super NES Classic Edition; NES Classic Edition Returns to Stores in 2018

After all, it one of the most sought items during the 2016 holiday shopping season - and also one of the most hard to find.

The company on Tuesday said its NES Classic Edition will start shipping again in 2018 due to strong demand.

Unfortunately, the supply did not meet the demand, and many fans were left disappointed when the Japanese gaming company announced they planned to stop producing the console.

Nintendo dubbed the console a "limited-time product" and discontinued it in April.


The company says its Nintendo Entertainment System Classic Edition will return next summer.

It is a good thing that Nintendo had a change of plans, as this would allow more retro gamers to enjoy the 8-bit gaming experience offered by the classic console with its 30 built-in games.

The game that gave birth to the legend...of Zelda...appears on NES Classic Mini. The titles included are "Final Fantasy III", "Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past", and "Star Fox 2". However, Nintendo is also bringing back one of the classics. The 8-bit system went on sale for the holidays previous year.

In addition, more units of Super NES Classic Edition will ship on its september 29 launch day in the US than were shipped of NES Classic Edition all previous year, with subsequent shipments arriving in stores regularly. The console is expected to sell out just as quickly as it did when it was released on the same date previous year, but Best Buy is now taking pre-orders of the SNES. The Switch is performing well so far, with over five million units sold world wide, but finding a brand new version is proving no easy feat.
