NES Classic Update: How Nintendo Solved Its Out-Of-Stock Problem?

According to reports, Nintendo Classic Mini NES stock issues have been largely addressed, as per a statement coming from Nintendo, despite the fact that the console has been constantly sold out since Christmas. Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime admitted that the company has somehow underestimated how widespread the machine's popularity would prove.

Fils-Aime gives some assurance

He also claimed that Nintendo is already addressing the problem and that the recently-introduced Nintendo Switch would have a steady flow of hardware when it rolls out.

"When we looked at that proposition what we believed was the adults, 30-40 years old who grew up playing the NES as kids, 10 years old or so but had stepped away from the gaming category - that was going to be the definite buyer of the NES Classic," Fils-Aime said in a recent interview.

"As we thought about that, it has led us to a certain level of supply. That was the marketplace disconnect that happened."

About the Nintendo Switch stock

There have already been concerns that the Nintendo Switch would also be experiencing the same shortage woes, and that even pre-order customers would be disappointed by stock shortages. However, Fils-Aime believes that the 2 million Nintendo Switch units allotted for its official launch are already a sufficient amount.

Fils-Aime also states that Nintendo is already working to make sure that the supply chain for the Switch will be robust and there will be a steady flow of hardware. "The one piece we can't anticipate is the demand side of the spectrum but certainly from a supply, we feel like we're going to be ready this time," he added.

Nintendo fans will find out more when the Switch officially launches on March 3 with a $300 price tag. The Nintendo Classic Mini NES games lineup includes the original Super Mario Bros Trilogy, Final Fantasy, The Legend of Zelda, Mega Man 2 and Castlevania.
