The system, which was a tiny version of the original Nintendo system, was around for less than six months.
Consumers are often found empty-handed when trying to look for Nintendo NES Classic Edition from brick and mortar stores this is because of the announcement made by Nintendo last Thursday regarding its discontinuation.

That report suggested that the mini SNES could come out before Christmas.
