Nintendo of America president Reggie Fills-Aimé has told TIME magazine that the NES Classic has sold over 2.3 million units.

This follows the announcement that the retro system has now been discontinued worldwide.


"We had originally planned for this to be a product for last holiday," Fils-Aimé told TIME. "We just didn't anticipate how incredible the response would be."

A classic SNES would be great, but I am still skeptical of how Nintendo could bundle a bunch of great SNES games at an affordable price.

At Games releases Atari and Sega Genesis retro systems every holiday. Why can't Nintendo do same with NES? I know Classic SNES is coming and hopefully a Classic N64, too. Nintendo needs to keep its classic systems in production, change games each year. Or offer Switch compilation carts!
