The end is near! Yes. Nintendo has ceased production for hard to get consoles SNES (Super Nintendo Entertainment System) and NES (Nintendo Entertainment System).
During an interview with THR (The Hollywood Reporter), Nintendo of America President, president Reggie Fils-Aime, made it official. He mentioned that the gaming company will no longer produce the coveted tiny consoles.
“There’s no ability for add-on content with our classic consoles, so when you purchase the console it’s coming with that set roster of content. We worked very hard, both for the NES Classic and the SNES Classic. Only to have the best games that defined that generation. We’ve said that the current systems are the extent of our classic program. We’ve also been clear. At least from an Americas perspective, these products are going to be available through the holiday season and once they sell out, they’re gone.”, stated Fils-Aime..
He then continued saying the following:
“The way that consumers will be able to continue participating with our classic content is going to be through Nintendo Switch Online. And we just released three new games (Ninja Gaiden, Wario’s Woods and Adventures of Lolo) from the NES generation onto that platform. We look at that as the main way that consumers will be able to experience that legacy content”, said Fils-Aime in the interview.
Since their announcement, both small items have been the a must-have item. Not just for for gamers but also for nostalgic consumers. In a past report we did a little research on how of an uphill battle was to get the NES Classic console on it’s release day two years ago.
After the outpouring of fans and collectors alike, Nintendo gave in to their demands. That is when they decided to produce more NES Classic console. Before the release of the SNES Classic, Nintendo made one thing clear. One thing was clear with the SNES Classic. Once the SNES Classic hit the shelves on September of last year, they would produce a large amount of it. That way everyone would be able to get their hands on one.
Do you already have yours? Clock’s ticking…
