It's clear that the SNES Classic Mini has been a great success so far, with pre-orders selling out despite an appropriate volume of stock being shipped by Nintendo to supply demand this time - unlike the NES Mini which was notoriously difficult to pick up.

The picture in Japan appears to be much the same, with Famitsu reporting that 368,000 units of the Super Famicom Mini sold in the first 4 days in Japan. By comparison, the Famicom Mini sold 262,000 in Japan in the same time period last year.

Could it be that Japanese consumers are more fond of the Super Famicom, or is it simply down to supply? The Super Famicom Mini is currently sold out nationwide across Japan, but Nintendo said they will ship more units soon.
