According to reports from a Scandinavian retailer, the production of the Nintendo NES Classic Mini would be officially over. The retailer received the news from Bergsala, local distributor of Nintendo products in Northern Europe.


A rather disturbing reports come from the Scandinavian dealer Spillsjappa, which after a series of rumors appeared on NeoGaf who revealed via his Facebook page that the Mini NES would have already been phased out.

The dealer in question would have received the news from Nintendo distributor in Northern Europe, Bergsala, according to which, despite a halt to production, yet shipments would be available under the premises involved in the production.

Bergsala was unable to satisfy the request because the dealer would not have enough stocks of NES Classic Mini: the production of micro console would come to an end a few weeks ago and the house of Kyoto would have scheduled two more shipments for April and May, after the period indicated the distribution of the NES Mini should end permanently.

At every public intervention, Nintendo has confirmed its intention to enhance the production of Mini NES to cope up with the demands but, if this report was extended to areas outside of Scandinavia, many will remain empty-handed or would have to rely on secondary sellers with consequent increased price.

At the moment, the news has not been confirmed by Nintendo. NES Classic Mini series has achieved a great success with over two million units sold worldwide, but for some time, however, there have been large inventory problems that have caused many bad discontent between the players.
