N64 mini is going to come, 100% sure of it. Wonder how much more it's going to cost though. N64 is notorious for being difficult to upscale and get a clean picture out of (even with hardware mods). They would have to remove the AA blur filter from each game too.

Don't think an N64 mini will do as well as the SNES and NES minis. The N64 has less nostalgia attached to it (it has a fair bit, but substantially less than the NES and SNES).

I think they will take a break this year and will try to meet the demand for NES classic and SNES.

Nice numbers. I'm waiting for round 2 of the NES classic, myself.

You mean to tell me that in a 3 month period, they only managed to manufacture 4 million units? Nintendo sure does hate money, cuz the SNES Classic is raw profit.

Almost outsold the WiiU

CrisYoshi (on 01 February 2018)

1/3 of WiiU sales, not bad!

It's a cool little piece of hardware, no wonder it's selling. Good job Nintendo.
