Nintendo is discontinuing the NES Classic Edition. They released a statement to confirm this.

“Throughout April, NOA territories will receive the last shipments of Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition systems for this year. We encourage anyone interested in obtaining this system to check with retail outlets regarding availability. We understand that it has been difficult for many consumers to find a system, and for that we apologize. We have paid close attention to consumer feedback, and we greatly appreciate the incredible level of consumer interest and support for this product.”

. The supply has been constrained for a while and it is ending its run very soon after its launch. This is not surprising though, as Nintendo only intended this as a stop gap item.

Now that this is being discontinued, it is now more likely than ever that we will see news of the virtual console on Switch very soon.
