''Sales of Nintendo’s nostalgic NES Classic Edition were up 14 percent compared to November, its debut month that saw it move 196,000 consoles. Meanwhile, Pokémon helped the aging 3DS portable grow its sales by 2 percent from December 2015.''

What does this mean for the NES Classic Edition? It would seem that US sales from December stand at about 223,440 units sold. We can only hope that they will start making more soon.
