Nintendo revives NES Classic, bolsters SNES Classic production
After disappearing from store shelves, the NES Classic is returning next year. But that’s not all: the Super NES Classic will continue to be shipped through 2018. In Japan, the Super Famicom will still get shipped after October, and the Famicom Mini is going back into production. Hot damn.
Is this an end to the bizarre saga of the NES Classic? Nintendo’s retro console was hard to find last holiday season thanks to insane popularity, but the company announced back in April that it was discontinuing the device, and focusing on the SNES Classic.
Now, it seems, you’ll have your choice of which classic Nintendo game system to buy.1 Or, let’s be honest: buy both.
- Perhaps the success of the Switch has helped embolden the company. ↩
