Nintendo Discontinues the NES Classic

Nintendo of America has announced they’re discontinuing the NES Classic Edition.

The news comes via a statement to IGN:

“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.”

The spokesperson noted the last shipments for the console will go out to retailers throughout this month. The Nintendo representative elaborated a bit regarding the hardware’s longevity and popularity, and how the company struggled to meet demands.

NES Classic Edition wasn’t intended to be an ongoing, long-term product. However, due to high demand, we did add extra shipments to our original plans,” the Nintendo rep said. Naturally, the NES Classic Controller is being discontinued as well.

Nintendo of America wouldn’t confirm whether or not this means the throwback release is being discontinued around the world, as both Europe and Japan have their own versions of the console.
