In Nintendo’s latest financial results briefing, company president Tatsumi Kimishima revealed that the Super NES Classic Edition has sold over 2 million units worldwide since its launch in September and October.
The Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition has reached a sell-through of 2 million units worldwide, at latest tallies.
The expectation is that the chance to interact with video games for those who either haven’t done so in a long while or those who never have will lead to a greater appreciation for our newest gaming console, Nintendo Switch. The Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition will continue to ship moving forward.
As has been announced already, a decision has been reached to resume production of the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition in 2018. We are hoping that consumers eager to purchase this system will wait just a short while longer.
Note: This hardware is called the Nintendo Classic Mini: Family Computer in Japan and the Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System in Europe and Australia
