During a recent interview with Wired, Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime touched on several subjects pertaining to the upcoming March 3rd launch of the Nintendo Switch. In addition to giving us some insight into the company’s new subscription service and Virtual Console plans, Reggie also offered up this golden nugget of information regarding the Switch’s availability in the aftermath of the Nintendo Classic’s infamously short supply:
“From what I’ve read, the concern seems to stem from the lack of ability to buy NES Classic… What happened with NES Classic is that was a situation where the global demand was well in excess of anything we had anticipated, and that’s what created shortages. The good news, at least for consumers in the Americas, is we’re going to continue to make the NES Classic available. With the ongoing level of supply, the ongoing demand is going to be met. We know the concern.” — Reggie
It looks like there may hope for all of us who didn’t get a NES Classic in time for Christmas. Hopefully, we’ll see a re-stock of the Classic’s soon! In the meantime, keep checking Zelda Informer for the latest updates and let us know what you think in the comments below.
