But it looks like there may be some more stick of the micro console ahead of Christmas.
Nintendo may not be launching the NX this year, but they’ll still have new hardware on sale this Holiday season. But with the NES Mini, they’re going backwards in time, not looking towards the future. The NES Mini is going to be a small emulation box that comes pre-loaded with 30 NES games, and which is a miniature replica of the original, classic Nintendo console that resurrected the gaming industry 30 years ago.
This blast from the past has apparently been a huge hit with customers- Amazon UK are indicating that the console has sold out, although more units are expected by Christmas.
“Due to limited stock we are only able to offer one unit per customer per address. You will be notified via email of the expected delivery date closer to the time. We will be fulfilling customer orders in the order in which they were placed, and expect to fill all pre-orders by mid-December 2016,” Amazon said.
Sounds like Nintendo may have a good Holiday season after all- let’s just hope that they use the positive momentum to assist their launch for the Nintendo NX.
