The SNES Classic will be available later this month when it launches September 29 in North America and September 30 globally.
In an interview with the Financial Times, Reggie Fils-Aime addressed the issues preventing Nintendo from just making more Nintendo Switch units.
Fearing a repeat of last year's NES Classic fiasco when the miniaturized version of Nintendo's home console was virtually impossible to find in stores, and often sold for many times its asking price on auction sites?
With 1.5 million sales under its belt, Nintendo has already bagged the accolade of fastest selling console.
With the demand of the NES Classic resulting in supply issues, many fans were left anxious that a similar issue will arise when with the release of the forthcoming SNES Mini. Thus, they underestimated their own NES Classic.
Mbappe's Arsenal transfer talk to ease fan pressure on Wenger?
Neymar cut the Metz defence open with a fine pass that found Cavani, who rounded the goalkeeper and fired into an empty net. If you ask me now I'd say I prefer center forward. "We wanted to limit (PSG) to as few goals as possible but it was hard ".
Cleveland Browns lose a close season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers

Sadio Mane has issued a heartfelt apology to Ederson
Liverpool will play Sevilla in the Champions League on Wednesday as City will play away to Feyenoord on same day. Ederson , who took a kick to the face, was replaced by Claudio Bravo, while Mane is now facing a three match ban.
Additionally, Fils-Aimé said it wasn't a question of lacking supply, and he urged potential customers not to turn to third-party re-sellers to buy one. Talking about the possibility of VR coming to the company's latest product, the Nintendo Switch, Fils-Aime said that the "problem with VR is that there aren't a lot of experiences that are truly fun". "You shouldn't [have to] pay more than $79.99".
"I would strongly urge you not to over-bid on an SNES Classic on any of the auction sites", he said.
The executive is right - you shouldn't have to pay more than retail for the company's retro-infused gaming system.
The unexpectedly high demand and "multiple choke points" in the supply chain have led to a dismayed fanbase, most notably in Japan.
Either way, we reckon that if you want a Switch or have promised to get someone the console for Christmas, you ought to start throwing money at Nintendo and authorised retailers.
