No one can deny Japan's passion and loyalty for the Nintendo brand, it should then come as no surprise that Nintendo's latest retro mini-console, the SNES Mini (Mini Super Famicom in Japan) is selling extremely well.




Nintendo have sold 368,913 units in Japan since the SNES Mini has been on sale, that's only 4 days! In comparison, the NES mini sold 262,000 units over the same period. Both are impressive statistics considering the SNES mini is essentially a 16 year old miniature console. No figures have been released regarding the rest of the world's sales figures, but due to a stock shortage you can bet the SNES Mini is selling well across the globe.


The NES Mini sold 2.3 million units during its 6 months before it was discontinued, you can expect the SNES Mini to surpass that figure and open the door for the N64 Mini to be produced.
