And now I’m completely screwed on that front. Nintendo has decided to end production of the mini console in North America.


In a statement to IGN, Nintendo confirmed that it will no longer produce new mini-NES systems in North America—at least in 2017:

“Throughout April, NOA territories will receive the last shipments of Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition systems for this year. We encourage anyone interested in obtaining this system to check with retail outlets regarding availability. We understand that it has been difficult for many consumers to find a system, and for that we apologize. We have paid close attention to consumer feedback, and we greatly appreciate the incredible level of consumer interest and support for this product.”


Sigh, now I wont have one for my collection, unless people stop selling them at scalper prices, But given the rarity of the product, it seems I’ll never have one.
