From the beginning of its conception, gamers all around ensured this product was highly sought after. In typical Nintendo fashion each outlet only received 20-30 units per store, leaving many consumers going home empty handed.
So why exactly did Nintendo axe such a popular product? Many things are factored into making this decision. It could be that licenses with the included games are set to expire soon. As a business Nintendo has to plan these things many months in advance. It could simply be that Nintendo did not expect to see a huge market for this console.
However, Nintendo could have made this decision in an attempt to not cannibalize potential virtual console sales on the Nintendo Switch. With no news revealed toward the virtual console, we can only look to E3 for a hopeful announcement. Nintendo could introduce a mind blowing experience on the Nintendo Switch completely making us forget about the NES Classic all together.
Lastly, Nintendo could be revealing a new and improved version of the NES classic, one that will could include SNES games. If this is the case, yet again Nintendo would never surprise to amaze us.
