Report: That’s it for the Nintendo Classic NES Mini in Australia (Update: Confirmed)
Update: Nintendo Australia has confirmed to Vooks that the NES Mini has also been discontinued in Australia.
We can confirm that we are no longer manufacturing the Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System. If production resumes in the future, an update will be posted on the official Nintendo website.
Original Story: Last week when Australian retailers got a restock of the NES Mini we warned you that it might be the last one and turns out it probably is.
We’ve now spoken to multiple trustworthy sources and have been able to confirm that stores have been told there will be no more NES Mini stock to order and to stop taking orders / pre-orders for them if they were doing so. This might change in the future, but at the moment Nintendo won’t be shipping any more.
Does this mean the NES Mini is discontinued? It might, but we haven’t heard conclusive news about this and this could just be for Australia. We’ll keep an ear to the ground for more news on this. The short of it is, if you’re after a NES Mini buy one at a store before the scalpers return.
We’ve contacted Nintendo Australia for comment but did not receive a reply in time for publishing.
