Just as Nintendo has decided to end NES Classic production, it's doing the same in Japan for the miniature Famicom. Yet, the decision does not sound permanent.

As Famitsu notes, the official site for the Nintendo Classic Mini Famicom states, "Production of this product is ending temporarily. When manufacturing resumes, we will provide information at another time on this homepage."

The Famicom Mini has been incredibly popular in Japan, selling 262,961 in its first four days last year.

At least it's eventually coming back, I guess?


    Nintendo loves Japan and hates the West. So no more Mini NES Classics for the West, but will probably return in Japan.

    Nintendo have made it pretty clear they hate being rational and hate making money.
