More than a third of Wii U lifetime sales.

I'm very curious as well, it must not be much since they aren't so gung-ho about supplying retailers with adequate stock.

Seems they went back to the drawing table with projecting the popularity of these, after the NES Classic demand landed them in hot water. The SNES mini is still in stock everywhere I can find it, so they've obviously made A LOT.

Way more than I thought. Guess supply was not as bad as people said it was.
