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.

Nintendo also told IGN that the company only intended the NES Classic to be a short-run product and plans to discontinue manufacturing for the NES Classic’s controller. The manufacturer couldn’t confirm if it also plans to discontinue the NES Classic worldwide. The Famicom Mini is the Japanese version of the NES Classic.

Upon its launch in late 2016, the NES Classic was a strong sales performer for Nintendo. The retro reboot of Nintendo’s stalwart console retailed for $59.99 and featured 30 classic games like Mario Bros., Metroid and Donkey Kong.

However, the NES suffered from severe inventory shortages, which caused prices to spike on third-party vendors like eBay. In February, Nintendo confirmed that the NES Classic had sold more than 1.5 million units at that time.
