After usually 6 months on a market, Nintendo says it is discontinuing a NES Classic Edition in North America.

“Throughout April, NOA territories will accept a final shipments of Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition systems for this year,” Nintendo pronounced in a statement.

“We inspire anyone meddlesome in receiving this complement to check with sell outlets per availability. We know that it has been formidable for many consumers to find a system, and for that we apologize. We have paid tighten courtesy to consumer feedback, and we severely conclude a implausible turn of consumer seductiveness and support for this product.”
