Nintendo sold 196,000 NES Classic Editions in November

The NES Classic Edition has become a tough gift to find during this holiday season. Cheers to those who’ve already located one (or two), but according to industry tracker NPD, Nintendo sold 196,000 pieces of nostalgia-bait to US customers between its launch and the end of November. Compare that to Media-Create’s numbers, which showed Japanese sales of the Classic Mini Famicom surpassed 261k units in just one week. Clearly, the demand is there, but the question is if Nintendo will be able to make enough of the systems available before the holiday rush is over. (If it follows this up with an SNES Classic Edition, we’ll probably be lining up all over again.)
