The NES Classic Edition has been a pretty strong hit for Nintendo – according to Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime when speaking to Time, the console managed to sell 2.3 million units. This is up from 1.5 million sales in February 2017 and despite the console being recently discontinued.

Speaking about plans to “focus on the future”, Fils-Aime said, “We had originally planned for this to be a product for last holiday. We just didn’t anticipate how incredible the response would be.

“Once we saw that response, we added shipments and extended the product for as long as we could to meet more of that consumer demand.”

Though the final shipments came about this month, stock is already sold out. Fils-Aime apologized for consumers who were “frustrated about not being able to find the system,” but also said that Nintendo “needs to drive” other areas. “We’ve got a lot going on right now and we don’t have unlimited resources.”

Besides that being the Nintendo Switch – which has sold 2.74 million units worldwide – that includes the rumoured SNES Classic that’s apparently arriving later this year.
