Nintendo NES Classic Edition stocks have been replenished and are reportedly vanishing quickly again. Good news is that Nintendo has released a statement confirming they will continue production of the mini console.
Earlier this month, fans of the mini console had difficulty locating stores to buy their own unit. As previously reported, the Nintendo NES Classic Edition inventory reflected on the website of some big stores was too scarce, if not "sold out."
Rumors have even surfaced that the new mini console will no longer be produced. Things get worst when others have reportedly resorted to buying second-hand units with blown-up price tags.
Fortunately now, new reports bring good news to those who still have not purchased their own NES Classic Edition. In addition, the inventory status on the websites of some big stores no longer reflects a red flag signal.
The limited 7 units in stock at Walmart based on our Feb. 9 update is no longer reflected. You may grab your unit from this link.
However, stocks are moving faster at Best Buy. Checking out the Best Buy site, the previous marking of "Sold out online" is still reflected. The mini console is still not available but you may check out from time to time for new stocks from this link.
Meanwhile, fans need not worry anymore as stocks were confirmed by the company itself. A Nintendo UK representative told TechRadar, "Production for the Nintendo Classic Mini: NES continues, and NOE (Nintendo of Europe) will continue to ship units to retail on a regular basis."
In another report, the Nintendo NES Classic Edition has ranked third in the best-selling console category for the month of January. The PlayStation 4 was ranked the top-selling gaming system while the Xbox One came in second place, VentureBeat has noted.
