As you'd probably heard a week or so ago, Nintendo has officially discontinued the NES Mini. Today, however, Eurogamer reports that it may have been done to make way for the SNES Mini, coming later this year.
Stock levels were weak, at best, when it came to the NES Mini, but Nintendo had never intended it to be a permanent edition to its shelves. Typical of the internet people went mad for it, much like the Nintendo Switch situation currently.
The SNES Mini is apparently planned to launch around Christmas 2017, much like the NES Mini in 2016. We can only hope that Nintendo learns from its mistake and provides more stock at launch to save fans disappointment.
Take the news with a pinch of salt. Though Eurogamer is pretty spot-on with scoops, there's always room for error, so get excited...but not too excited just yet.
