SNES Classic Edition production has some very good news


While many fans have missed out on pre-orders for the micro-console, Nintendo of America's Reggie Fils-Aime provided some reassurance in an interview with Financial Times that stock provided for the SNES Classic will match high consumer demand. Nintendo's total lack of communication about when pre-orders would go live, and where, resulted in a lot of frustrated consumers.

The launch of Nintendo's NES Classic Edition previous year was marred by the company's near-total disconnection from reality, as supply issues drove resale prices of the mini-console to several hundred dollars.

Fearing a repeat of last year's NES Classic fiasco when the miniaturized version of Nintendo's home console was virtually impossible to find in stores, and often sold for many times its asking price on auction sites?

According to Nintendo, it has planned to "dramatically increase" production of the SNES Classic Edition to ensure everyone can buy it at retail.

"Certainly the demand is there, and our supply chain is there" Fils-Aime explained, in meeting that milestone, but he did not want to promise that they could meet the demand for the holiday season.

"I would strongly urge you not to over-bid on an SNES Classic on any of the auction sites", he said."You shouldn't pay more than $79.99".

Speaking of the upcoming Retro console, Nintendo has revealed that SNES Classic is a form of a virtual console. Thus, they underestimated their own NES Classic.

After being questioned on whether the shortage might be due to parts needed from external suppliers, the charismatic president confirmed that "there are multiple choke points" but refused to go into any further details. Can we do more?

It's easy to cast doubt on the exec's claims, but it's worth noting that he seems less optimistic about meeting the holiday demands for the Nintendo Switch.
