The Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition was one of the hottest holiday items around the world and it has reached a global sell-through of 1.5 million units.

 

Here’s more about it from Nintendo’s Financial Results Briefing for Fiscal Year Ending March 2017:

 

In November last year, we brought back the nostalgic Famicom and NES home consoles in palmsized versions and shipped the entire quantity of Nintendo Classic Mini Family Computer units we initially prepared for each market. We apologize to our consumers and retail partners for the inconvenience caused by product shortages. Some parts require time to procure, but we are working to increase production. We also see the nostalgic interest in these products as an opportunity to draw consumers’ attention to our latest game system, Nintendo Switch

 

Note: This system was sold as the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition in the United States. This system was sold as the Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System in Europe and Australia.
