Nintendo Super NES Classic Edition Sells 4 Million Units Worldwide

Nintendo revealed in its financial results briefing for the fiscal year ending March 2018 that its Super NES Classic Edition (known as the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Famicom in Japan) game system has sold 4 million units worldwide.

The Super NES Classic Edition debuted last September in North America and Europe, and last October in Japan. The system comes with two controllers and 21 pre-loaded games, with the included games slightly different between the Western and Japanese releases.

Nintendo previously released a Classic Edition for its Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) in the West and an equivalent Family Computer (Famicom) in Japan in November 2016. Nintendo had shipped over 1.5 million units of the console worldwide as of the end of January 2017.
