Nintendo is Seemingly Still Considering Making More New Mini Consoles

Nintendo might continue to make more classic editions of its consoles, which is a tough ordeal considering the very prevalent hardware shortages.

During a Nintendo shareholder meeting held on Tuesday, Nintendo was asked about its plans for the future of its mini consoles. As transcribed by VGC, president Shuntaro Furukawa replied, “We always want our products to be played by people of all ages, from children to adults. In fact, after being in the video game business for many years, we believe that there is now a very wide range of generations who have adopted Nintendo consoles.”

It comes as no surprise that Nintendo directs its mini-consoles towards consumers who no longer play video games, but have had experiences with presumably Nintendo consoles in the past. Furukawa also drops a suggestion about how re-experiencing their past helps in drawing more people into buying a new console. Shuntaro Furukawa says, “We will continue to examine the possibility of offering classic content, such as with the NES and Super NES Classic Mini series, as well as our online services, as a way of communicating the appeal of our products to different generations.”

Nintendo’s attempts with the NES and SNES classic have been incredibly successful, and competitors including the likes of Sony have also joined in with their own classic consoles. Of course, there’s also the fact that manufacturing anything at a large scale is incredibly difficult right now, mostly due to chip shortages.

Nintendo also seems to be on to something with reports and rumors of a Switch Pro flooding through on a consistent basis.
