The SNES and NES Classic systems from Nintendo have been one of the most popular items in gaming since their debut. So much that other companies, like Sony, attempted to mimic their success but now the systems’ production are ending. With Nintendo ceasing production for both classic systems.

Reggie Fils-Aime, CEO of Nintendo of America, says Nintendo is discontinuing production on both the NES Classic and the SNES Classic. Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter:

“We’ve said that the current systems are the extent of our classic program,” Fils-Aime said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. “We’ve also been clear that, at least from an Americas perspective, these products are going to be available through the holiday season and once they sell out, they’re gone. And that’s it.”

The wording Fils-Aime used could mean that JP and EU versions will remain but not NA consoles. If you live in the US and you see one of these consoles it’s best to pick one up.
