Nintendo stops supplementing Classic Mini’s stock in North America




The stocks of Nintendo Entertainment System and Super Nintendo Entertainment System Classic Mini’s are no longer replenished in North America. Whether the decision also applies to stocks in Europe is still unknown.

The CEO of Nintendo’s North American branch, Reggie Fils-Aime, tells The Hollywood Reporter that today’s consoles complete Nintendo’s classic line-up, which is a reference to earlier statements that no N64 Classic Mini is on the schedule.

“We have been clear that, at least from the American perspective, the products are available during the holidays and when they are sold out, they remain sold out,” stresses Fils-Aime. The way in which consumers can make use of classic games, according to the CEO, is the Nintendo Switch Online service, to which recently, for example, Ninja Gaiden, Wario’s Woods and Adventures of Lolo have been added. Now that Nintendo sees that service as the primary channel for classic games, the chances are small that there are still Classic Mini systems.

The NES Classic Mini was released for the first time on November 11, 2016 and the SNES version a year later, on September 29, 2017. Both miniconsoles were limited, so they sold out quickly. With the NES Classic Mini it took more than a year before the console was available again.
