Since the WiiU has been called off, Nintendo is aiming to get back at the consoles race with even better deals for the gamer. Now, Nintendo has extended the support for the Nintendo 3DS, thanks to the Nintendo Switch, which has taken the world by storm.

Nintendo hasn't had a major console game endorsing the WiiU or the 3DS, with only a Pokemon game in the line for Nintendo. Things were looking bleak for Nintendo, and that has changed.

Nintendo is once again up for grabs as it has announced a resurrected console, the Mini NES Classic Edition, which has been set with games of the past. Nintendo is aiming to strike the nostalgia chord with this, and hopes to rope in millennial gamers. Nintendo has also stolen the immediate market with their $99 hot Black Friday deal on the 3DS, and with "Pokemon Sun and Moon" released, people are looking to get their hands on the discounted console.

However, the company seemed to be wired up with bad promotions and scarcity of products. Nintendo did not have an extensive marketing on the deals and promotions they were offering to people in the form of the discounted 3DS.

Stores have not been able to get their hands on the console. What that means is the Mini NES Classic Edition has been simply impossible to dig out of stores. Nintendo has provided a hot deal for the NES and that is of a $60 price tag loaded with games that the entire family can enjoy. However, finding one has not been easy.

Nintendo has said that it is not contributing to artificial sales, i.e. intentionally keeping the stock of the NES low to keep the interest of the common man piqued. What Nintendo seems to be suffering from is a unified structure for sales.
