Great news, the Nintendo NES Classic Mini stock update says it continues to improve. Several online store giants are stocking up on the console once more.

However, it seems like the stocks are only improving in the UK. For the past few weeks, there has been an improvement on the Nintendo NES Classic Mini.

All of those speculations of Nintendo ending the NES production was finally put to bed. And every fan hoping to get their NES Classic Mini finally got some great news.

In an update sent to TechRadar, Nintendo dispelled the myths of NES Classic stopping in production. The statement reads: "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 the past few weeks, fans have seen stocks rise at several stores. This includes GAME, Tesco, Smyths Toys, Argos, Amazon and even on Nintendo's own shop.

Stock Informer reported that this stock was immediately sold out within minutes. Aside from this dilemma, there are multiple reports on the social media network Twitter of buyers not receiving their stock alerts when the new stock became available.

This is a great disappoint to some buyers who are hoping to get their hands on the elusive console. Stock alerts are the only way people will get notified when shipments arrive on the nearest stores near them.

Tesco's Twitter account was quick to respond to this problem. The tweet sent out by the company reads, "If stock runs out before sending the alert then it [the stock alert] will be canceled."

This could also be the case for the other stores. Fans are advised to also turn on their stock alerts from Stock Informer. The website sends out fairly reliable alerts.

Months after its release, the Nintendo NES Classic Mini continues to be one of the most sought-after consoles to date. Its elusiveness has only made fans want it more.

For those who are trying to comprehend why the NES Classic Mini is still so difficult to find despite being in the market for a few months, Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima released a statement regarding the matter. The statement reads:

"In November last year, we brought back the nostalgic Famicom and NES home consoles in palm-sized versions and shipped the entire quantity of Nintendo Classic Mini Family Computer units we initially prepared for each market," explained Kimishima. "We apologize to our consumers and retail partners for the inconvenience caused by product shortages. Some parts require time to procure, but we are working to increase production."
