Rumor: Nintendo is releasing the SNES mini this year

It might be the reason why NES mini is no longer manufactured.

Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition, or NES mini as it was also called, is no longer being produced after being highly popular and demanded among players. If you wondered why Nintendo decided to stop the production that fast, Eurogamer might have the explanation.

Rumors say that the company is well under preparation for a release of a SNES mini scheduled for this year. While NES was Nintendo’s first hardware (let’s skip Color TV-Game), it was SNES, which mesmerized players with software.

You should treat this information as a rumor until officially confirmed by Nintendo. We’ll update you when that happens.
