The Nintendo Classic NES Mini will soon be out of stock everywhere
The Nintendo Classic NES Mini has proved a very popular device, selling out almost instantly when first launched in 2016.
Nintendo themselves have apologised on several occasions for the lack of stock, citing that the console needed certain items to manufacture that were hard to get hold of.
But it has now been confirmed that the Nintendo Classic NES is being discontinued in North America.
It’s likely going to be the same situation in the UK, with both territories having struggled to see restocks on any large scale in recent months.
April will be the last month when Nintendo NES stock will be available at retailers, after that you can expect the prices to rocket on online marketplaces.

“Throughout April, NOA territories will receive the last shipments of Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition systems for this year," Nintendo told IGN.
"We encourage anyone interested in obtaining this system to check with retail outlets regarding availability. We understand that it has been difficult for many consumers to find a system, and for that we apologise.
“We have paid close attention to consumer feedback, and we greatly appreciate the incredible level of consumer interest and support for this product."
Sales figures for the Nintendo NES and Nintendo Switch are expected before the end of April from the Japanese games giant and both are expected to have done well.
