Nintendo America’s Reggie Fils-Aimé has been a busy man, appearing on the Jimmy Fallon Show, and today speaking with Fox Business about the ‘must have’ Christmas gift, the Nintendo Classic Edition, or Nintendo Mini. He goes on to say that he believes consumers will be able to get one before the holidays.
“It’s a challenging holiday gift, once again Nintendo has the “it” holiday gift out on the market place, but the good news for all of those consumers is that we’re constantly putting more on the market…the best thing our retailers are doing is through social media, they are putting out messages when they have the product in the stores, so whether that’s Toys R Us, GameStop, Walmart, Target, all of our key retailers are letting consumers know when to go to stores to get it, so as we sit here today 2 weeks before Christmas, yeah I think consumers will be able to get their hands on it.” – Nintendo of America’s Reggie Fils-Aimé
