In yet another confirmation that wraps up the final applicable region, the NES Mini has reportedly been confirmed as discontinued in Italy.

Following North America, Japan and Australia, this marks Europe as the fourth territory confirmed to have stopped production of the popular device. This will no doubt be the last territory to make such an announcement, as that wraps up the main regions in which Nintendo operates.

While the future of the NES and Famicom Classic Editions is unclear, the internet is abuzz with speculation that we will soon see NES Virtual Console support on the Nintendo Switch. Whether that has any relation to this discontinuation is debatable, but in any case it's been a disappointing few days for fans of the diminutive retro console.
