Nintendo's year-end financial report has some fascinating tidbits in it, including this line:

Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition and Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition recorded total sales of 5.95 million units.

It's a shame that the NES and SNES Mini financial year sales are combined, as it would have been really interesting to know which one sold the most. Here are the most recent individual sales figures which we have for the mini retro consoles:

  • NES Mini - 3.6 million (as of June 30, 2018)
  • SNES Mini - 5.28 million (as of January 31, 2018)

With this in mind, it's easy to see why so many other companies are jumping on the micro retro console bandwagon.

Let us know which mini classic edition you'd like to see from Nintendo next. How about a Game Boy Mini or Nintendo 64 Mini? The possibilities are endless!
