If you were hoping to scoop up the NES Classic in North America - which plays Mega Man 2 among 29 other built-in games - you're nearly fresh out of luck: it's being discontinued by the end of this month.
A Nintendo of America representative provided the following statement to IGN:
“Throughout April, NOA territories will receive the last shipments of Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition systems for this year. We encourage anyone interested in obtaining this system to check with retail outlets regarding availability. We understand that it has been difficult for many consumers to find a system, and for that we apologize. We have paid close attention to consumer feedback, and we greatly appreciate the incredible level of consumer interest and support for this product.”
The representative goes on to say, "NES Classic Edition wasn’t intended to be an ongoing, long-term product. However, due to high demand, we did add extra shipments to our original plans."
Bit of a shame to see this bite the dust prematurely. The device was very successful, no doubt about that. So successful, in fact, consumers are still having a hard time finding one. Needless to say, demand for the device exists and will likely continue to be so. This is a curious move on Nintendo's part.
