According to a new report out of Eurogamer, Nintendo's now cooking up a new SNES console that'll be sold much like the NES Classic Edition, but possibly in higher quantities.

Eurogamer, citing multiple sources, claims production of the mini Super Nintendo, which we'll call the SNES Classic, is the reason production of the NES Classic has stopped despite global stock shortages and huge demand.

Potential customers were no-doubt disappointed last week when Nintendo announced that it was discontinuing the system, noting that it was never meant to be a permanent product.

You might think Nintendo would wait for the wounds of disappointed, scorned NES Classic Edition non-owners to heal, but apparently this is of little concern if EuroGamer's sources are to be believed. The system is already under development, and could be ready for this holiday season.

A SNES Classic Mini seems like an absolute no-brainer for Nintendo, considering how well the NES sold.

Nintendo knows how much you love obsessing over objects of your youth and that you will drive yourself insane trying to find them.

Last week, research firm NPD Group and Nintendo said that it sold more than 906,000 Switch consoles in North America in March, making it Nintendo's best-selling launch ever.

Nintendo has yet to officially confirm any details about the unconfirmed SNES mini but sooner small details become available we will keep you up-to-date as always.

Mini in November previous year at Christmas time, and it managed to ship more than 1.5 million units worldwide of the palm-sized version of the 1983 classic.

The NES Classic Edition was a commercial failure. Now, the company is selling a Mini version of its Super Nintendo following the same formula.
