Nintendo Investor Briefing (Feb. 2018) – Kimishima on the NES and Super NES Classic Editions, over 4 million units sold for the latter

During the latest Nintendo Investor Briefing, Tatsumi Kimishima briefly talked about the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition (known as Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System in Europe and Nintendo Classic Mini: Family Computer in Japan) and the Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition (known as Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System in Europe and Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Famicom in Japan).

Tatsumi Kimishima began by revealing that the Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition had sold over 4 million units worldwide: that’s more than the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition, during a similar timeframe… not surprising, since Nintendo did ship many more units this time around.

This year, Nintendo will resume the production of the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition, and will continue selling the Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition. If you haven’t had the chance to get either (or only one of them), you will be able to get one without having to give money to scalpers.

For Nintendo, those two consoles are the perfect opportunity to garner interest in the Nintendo Switch from people who either haven’t played video games in a while, or those who simply haven’t played any, ever.
