Nintendo's Mini-Sized Classic Console is Coming Back in 2018

The company says its Nintendo Entertainment System Classic Edition will return next summer.

The miniature version of the retro console Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) sold out pretty quickly after it was released, but players who were not able to get their hands on the console will have another chance thanks to the company's change of plans. "We will announce sales dates at a later time". "We have paid close attention to consumer feedback, and we greatly appreciate the incredible level of consumer interest and support for this product", Nintendo said back in April. We understand that it has been hard for many consumers to find a system, and for that we apologize. More details on the rerelease will be announced soon. "But from our perspective, it's important to recognize where our future is and the key areas that we need to drive", continued Fils-Aime.

After scalpers have sold countless NES Classic Edition consoles for obscene prices, Nintendo pulls a 180 and decides to sell its emulation machine again next year.

The Super NES Classic Edition system features 21 legendary Super NES games such as Super Mario World, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and Super Metroid.

In addition to this the Japanese firm has said that it will ship additional NES Classic Edition consoles in 2018. Nintendo has been quite unpredictable since it began selling games consoles in the 80s, and I can only wonder how the "Nintendo Effect" will continue testing the patience of its fans and customers while it monetizes nostalgia. The company has also announced that it is increasing the shipments of the upcoming Super NES Classic Edition, which is set to begin shipping on September 29.
