NES Classic Edition discontinued in North America, last shipments in April


Nintendo is ending shipments of the NES Classic Edition, the company has confirmed.

In a statement to IGN, Nintendo writes that the final shipments will be sent out to territories across North America throughout the month. Then that’s it – no more shipments this year.

The full statement from Nintendo reads:


“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.”

Thanks to Jes T for the tip.

People are pissed about this tho, cause a lot of people who wanted one couldn't get one.
I got one and even tho it does suck to actually play games on it cause of the small cord to the controller, I agree with them, scalpers ruined the chance of people getting one cause they kept making small shipments of them every month, making it easy for them to buy them all.

Amiibos for example, nobody wanted them, they suck shit, but once Nintendo said they are limited and won't make certain ones anymore, then the craze started cause of rabid collectors and greedy scalpers.

Personally, I rather have this than the NES classic.

a bundle for the switch of the 60 games on it on a cart that comes with a wireless NES controller. That would be a lot better.

This is a legit great idea, but they'll never do it because then they couldn't overcharge people for them on the e-shop.

The sort of people that pretends to win a war against piracy and hacking.

Since the discovery of the ability to increase the library through hacking it increased the demand something that nintendo repulses because that would make their switch program of 1 free game monthly useless :lol: .

But speaking serioussly it sums on this: Nintendo's strong policy aginst piracy & hacking, higher demand after it is know that you can increase your lame limited 30 game console into 700, pride hurt.

And let's face it $60 for 30 nes games is not worth it even if nostalgic factor is too strong.

Nintendo shuts down Famicom Mini now too


Following the permanent discontinuation of the NES Classic in America, Nintendo has now decided to do the same in Japan. The only difference is, the company says it's "temporary," leaving them room to fall back on it should they need it.

Many speculate the reason for the end of the NES Classic and Famicom Mini is so that Nintendo can better sell Virtual Console titles on the Switch.
