The incredibly rare NES Mini is officially back in production with more consoles set to ship in 2018, Nintendo has announced.

The company said it will ship more units of the Super NES Classic Edition on its US launch day, September 29, than all of past year with the NES Classic Edition. He also said that Nintendo anticipated that their retro console wouldn't be very popular due to other companies retro console sales figures.

Nintendo won't make the same mistake with the SNES Classic Mini that it did with the NES version.

The Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System contains 21 pre-installed classic games, can easily be plugged into any high-definition TV using the included HDMI cable.

To be blunt, you're pretty much screwed.

In addition, Nintendo also revealed that they plan to ramp up production of the SNES Mini and will continue to ship the console through to 2018.

Although Nintendo didn't get into specifics, it stated that brand new shipments of the NES Classic Edition will arrive during the summer of next year. But this time, Nintendo has promised to produce far more Super NES Classic Edition consoles than it did with last year's NES Classic Edition.

Announcements were also made on Twitter with regards to the NES and SNES availability in Europe.

Fans feared that history would repeat itself with the Super NES Classic, as pre-order stock again disappeared within minutes - sometimes seconds - of being listed online. Now it seems the Japanese company has found evidence suggesting that there is good demand for the system, and producing more of it will be good, both for fans and the company.

The Super NES Classic Edition - which is small enough to fit in your hand - is slated to hit shelves later this month and already appears to be one of the season's hottest products.
