Nintendo has a long history of producing insufficient quantities of new consoles to satisfy prospective customers, but the fervor with which people are trying to get their hands on the new Classic Mini consoles has highlighted this issue in a dramatic way, and Nintendo is taking steps to remedy the situation.

It has been difficult to obtain the NES Classic and pre-orders of the SNES Classic sold out in minutes. Nintendo originally ordered so few units to be produced because retro game consoles sold by other companies had historically not sold very well.

Reggie Fils-Aimé, president and chief operating officer of Nintendo of America, cautions buyers against spending more than $80 on the SNES Classic, and there is good reason for that.

Nintendo has just announced that the SNES Classic will continue to be produced into 2018. Originally, Nintendo had planned to ship units until the end of 2017, but demand has been so high Nintendo has expanded production of the console.

It seems even the launch day stock of the SNES Classic will be bolstered:

In addition, more units of Super NES Classic Edition will ship on its Sept. 29 launch day in the U.S. than were shipped of NES Classic Edition all last year, with subsequent shipments arriving in stores regularly.

In addition, Nintendo will produce and ship more of their NES Classic, which will go back on sale next year, with more details to come.
