Nintendo To Revive Sold Out NES Classic Edition

Nintendo To Revive Sold Out NES Classic Edition

In a recent interview with the Financial Times, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aimé said the firm has "dramatically increased" production of the Super NES Classic. Nintendo said that it sold 2.3 million units of the NES Class Edition, further confusing customers as to why the company was pulling the plug on such a successful product.

Though Nintendo had earlier pledged to ship the newer release only until the end of 2017, it now vows that shipments will arrive in stores "regularly".

While details regarding the NES Classic have been limited-in a statement Nintendo said they would release more info on plans for the console in the future-the company said the video game system will return along with 30 retro games including classics like the original Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros.

Next summer, Nintendo will also bring back the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition system with new shipments.

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 a year ago, with subsequent shipments arriving in stores regularly.

Is The NES Classic Edition Revival Good Or Bad?

The NES Classic was a surprise hit in 2016, with all copies selling out in stores and online within minutes of being stocked. This gives them another chance to buy the NES Classic Edition at its retail price of $59.99, and not for the hundreds of dollars that resellers are demanding for the device. Production ceased at the end of a year ago, and a lot people were understandably upset with Nintendo for miscalculating demand.
