Had a few questions on Plug N Play - The NES Classic Edition was the best-selling Plug N Play system of December and 2018. Only the Switch 32GB Neon Red/Blue Joy Con item sold more units of hardware in 2018 than the NES Classic Edition.— Mat Piscatella (@MatPiscatella) January 23, 2019
Nintendo will be discontinuing the NES Classic Edition and SNES Classic Edition now that the holiday period is over.
