Nintendo Classic Mini NES to be discontinued

Posted 20 April 2017 - By Mike Green

Classic Mini NES discontinued

Nintendo have now officially confirmed the Classic Mini NES is to be discontinued worldwide. This follows chronic stock shortages since its release in November 2016.

The reasoning behind this move isn't 100% clear, however reports suggest that Nintendo are now planning a SNES (Super Nintendo Entertainment System) Mini for release in time for Christmas 2017 and requires the manufacturing facilities for this new device.

Nintendo also stated that the last shipments of the NES Mini are due throughout April (this probably means just one shipment for the UK). As per previous stock, these are sure to sell very quickly with the console now becoming a collector’s item. Remember to keep the Stock Informer Classic Mini NES stock checker open and register for stock alerts to ensure you are the first to know when availability is found, be warned though that you will need to be quick as this stock is likely to sell out in literally minutes.

It transpires the NES Classic Mini was always only meant to be a cool novelty item for Christmas 2016 and Nintendo never intended to manufacture many more units beyond 2016 (although they have done).

eBay prices are currently over £200 which are likely to increase even further after the last stock hits the shelves.
