Nintendo is expected to continue supporting SNES Classic well into 2018, as well as make a comeback for the NES.

Nintendo has been pilloried over the past year for failing to meet demand with both the NES Classic and the Switch.

But gamers still want the original, so the company is giving into the demand and the console will be back on the market in 2018.

Nintendo attributed the decision to stop production to "limited resources".

The game that gave birth to the legend...of Zelda...appears on NES Classic Mini.

The console ($60) touts 30 built-in games, including "Mario Bros." and "Donkey Kong", and a retro-inspired controller. It will also include a new title, "Star Fox 2". At the time, Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime apologized to those who were not able to get the system. With pre-orders already sold out, a similar shortage could very well be on the horizon, although the company reassured buyers that a much more substantial amount of consoles had been manufactured for the SNES.

"Throughout April, [Nintendo of America] territories will receive the last shipments of Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition systems for this year". The company said it will ship more units of the Super NES Classic Edition on its USA launch day, September 29, than all of past year with the NES Classic Edition.

Nintendo's highly-sought after Classic Mini: NES is to go back into production, Nintendo of Japan tweeted this morning.

In its most recent quarter, the company sold 1.97 million Switch consoles.
