Last Year Nintendo announced a throwback console for cheap the NES Classic. If you didn’t get your hands on one yet you may now be completely out of luck. Nintendo announced that the popular $60 console is officially discontinued. A statement from them reads, ” Throughout April, NOA territories will receive the last shipments of the NES Classic Edition for this year. We understand that it has been difficult for many consumers to find a system and for that we apologize.”
This, of course, caused a major uproar in the community. However, the words you need to pay attention to in the statement is “for this year.” Hinting that this is not the last of the NES Classic. We might just get another system this year with different games on it. Let us know what you think about all of this in the comments below!
