Daily Briefs (Nov. 11, Round 2): NES Mini / Pokémon

Today’s Daily Briefs (Round 2): additional NES Mini shipments coming soon in North America + Amazon, but also…

  • Pokémon
  • Yo-kai Watch
  • Pixel Pals
  • Pumpkin carvings

NES Mini

Today, the Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment was released in Europe and North America. It’s quite likely that you are going to run into difficulties trying to secure one, especially if you live in North America. But there’s nothing to worry about, you can close that tab with eBay listings from unscrupulous scalpers.

Nintendo of America confirmed via Twitter that while they are hard at work trying to keep up with consumer demand, and that there would be a “steady flow of additional systems throughout the holiday shopping season and into the New Year”. We can assume the same applies to Europe and Japan.

If you’re looking forward to buy one, Amazon will start taking orders from 2PM PT / 5PM ET. [NB: affiliate link]
