Nintendo Says NES Mini Production Will Continue

Yesterday we heard a rumour stating that NES Mini production is coming to an end and only a handful of units will become available. The news stemmed from NeoGAF and has since been rebuffed by Nintendo UK who have said that production of the popular retro console will continue and that they will be shipping units on a regular basis.

“Production for the Nintendo Classic Mini: NES continues, and NOE [Nintendo of Europe] will continue to ship units to retail on a regular basis,” said a Nintendo UK representative.



      1. ||Like I’ve said earlier, but the rumour-sayer meant for all of this planet which obviously is not true…||

        1. Flere butikker som sier de ikke får mer på Facebook og skal sende mail til kunder som ikke vil få. (Jeg liker dem ikke) sier det ikke kommer mer heller.

          Vær så snill og eliminér disse også, Kommandør. (Syk, orker ikke engelsk i dag)

    1. Uh… pretendo moron. Have you read the article that Nintendo have stated that the NES Classic Edition will CONTINUE? Research, you fucking dick!!!!

      1. First off, you need to chill. Second, I believe he/she is referring to the fact that there is such a limited stock, and thus he/she has not been able to buy any of the NES mini. Which is a legitimate gripe. Since production will be continuing, they should eventually be able to get their hands on one, so it’s not the end of the world.

  1. I randomly found one in my local Walmart yesterday. I bought it as a gift for my mom who’s been wanting one since last year :)

  2. I can’t find one, and I’m sure as hell not paying over $100 for something that saves me about 15 min or so of setup to hook up my original.

    Still, now that we can fill the other 30 slots, I’d consider one at retail value. :)

  3. I have an original NES in the family video game archives that my mother is kind enough to keep. I don’t really have a need for the NES Mini, but it includes games that I don’t have physical copies of. Plus Commander Quadraxis would exile me if I didn’t buy at least one. :P

  4. I use brickseek to find NES at local retailers like Target and Walmart. I’m a video game collector. I’ve gotten 4. Kept 2 and gave 1 and sold 1 to friend. Target only sales them in the morning when store open.

  5. I’ll be shocked if I ever see the NES Mini in stores. I’ve only seen it in one store before Christmas (EntertainMart), and it was over $200 (yes, even in a store). And they still sold them. CRAZY! I look every time I’m in Wal-Mart or Target. But haven’t seen anything but an NES Mini carrying case.
