"We aren’t providing specific numbers, but we will produce significantly more units of Super NES Classic Edition than we did of NES Classic Edition," Nintendo of America said in a statement. "Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition is currently planned to ship from Sept. 29 until the end of calendar year 2017. At this time, we have nothing to announce regarding any possible shipments beyond this year."
Well, that's encouraging, right? The good news: Nintendo is making "significantly" more units of the SNES Classic than the NES Classic. The bad news: The company doesn't plan on producing shipments of the device after the end of the year. In other words, while you may have a better chance at getting your hands on one because there will be more units available, they'll be around for a shorter time compared to the NES Classic. Your Christmas might not be ruined this year after all. Might.
