Nintendo Classic Mini NES UK stock update
Nintendo Classic Mini NES fans may have been given renewed hope about a potential console re-stock.
The Nintendo Classic Mini was essentially discontinued by Nintendo last week, after a spokesperson said that North American territories would receive the last shipments of the year in April.
It was then revealed that Nintendo never intended for the NES Mini to be a long-term product in the first place.
Nintendo of Japan has since followed suit, telling fans that production had ended… for now.
"This product has ended production for now. When production is being resumed, we will tell you on our website," reads a statement.
While this is bad news for anybody who missed out on a Nintendo Classic Mini, the statement suggests that production will be resumed in the future.
Express Online has contacted Nintendo for clarification about the UK status of the NES Classic Mini, and whether it will be back in stock at the likes of Argos, Toys R Us and Smyths.
