Nintendo Discontinues NES Classic in Europe and Japan, Too

Nintendo of America previously confirmed they were discontinuing the NES Classic Edition, despite the fact that it was never properly stocked and it still made lots of money. Now, we’ve learned the console is being discontinued worldwide

Now both Nintendo Japan (via their website) and Nintendo of Europe (via Eurogamer) have announced they’re discontinuing the Famicom Mini / NES Classic as well.

In both cases, the official statement notes the console’s production has ended, and if they decide to put it back into production, they’ll let us know via its official website.
