Nintendo on the Discontinuation of the NES Classic Edition

In a statement made to IGN, Nintendo had the following to say about the NES Classic Edition:

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.

So there you have it, the final shipments will be coming this month. They “apologize” for making it difficult, yet their final shipment is coming this month? Strange, but such is Nintendo.

Did you grab yours already? Let us know in the comments!

I'm the head honcho here. I love Nintendo, and I love writing about it all. Ask me sometime about why I believe Waluigi is a ghost.
