Nintendo's retro phenomenon, the NES Classic, is going away despite its popularity.

The $60 (£50 or AU$100) all-in-one system has 30 built-in NES games and became one of 2016's hottest holiday gifts. Nevertheless, Nintendo of America on Thursday provided a statement to IGN saying the NES Classic is being discontinued in North America.

 "Throughout April, NOA territories will receive the last shipments of Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition systems for this year. We encourage anyone interested in obtaining this system to check with retail outlets regarding availability. We understand that it has been difficult for many consumers to find a system, and for that we apologize. We have paid close attention to consumer feedback, and we greatly appreciate the incredible level of consumer interest and support for this product."

That's right, according to a report from IGN, Nintendo is discontinuing the NES Classic beginning next month once the final shipments go out to retailers. Per that same IGN report, here's what a Nintendo rep said about the over-the-top bold move

Nintendo will discontinue the Nintendo Entertainment System : NES Classic Edition and the last shipments will go out to retailers throughout this month. The NES Classic Reportedly Sold Every 18 Seconds on eBay During Launch.

It hasn't been confirmed whether the NES Classic will be discontinued worldwide. Nintendo didn't respond to a request for comment.

Nintendo told IGN that the "NES Classic Edition wasn't intended to be an ongoing, long-term product. However, due to high demand, we did add extra shipments to our original plans."

Nintendo's Reggie Fils-Aime talked to CNET about the NES Classic's shortages last year, but until now it wasn't clear the mini console would ever stop being made. Nintendo executives told CNET last month that more NES Classic systems would be arriving soon, ending shortages.

The NES Classic is currently selling for about $160 on Amazon through third-party sellers, which has been common since last Christmas. Nintendo had already sold 1.5 million as of February.

To those looking for an NES Classic, which has been continually sold out since its debut, this is bound to be disappointing. My son loves the NES Classic more than the Nintendo Switch. But therein could lie the point: the NES Classic's affordable collection of retro games is an alternative to the Nintendo Switch, an equally hard-to-find $300 device that will launch its own paid online service with access to NES and SNES games this fall.
