Nintendo has announced it will relaunch production of the popular NES Classic Edition console released last year.

The company produced 2.3 million of the miniature retro consoles worldwide before halting production, despite high demand and pre-orders selling out at major retailers like JB Hi-Fi and EB Games.

NES Classic Mini consoles regularly sell for double their $99.95 RRP on eBay or even higher.

Specifics about the re-release aren’t yet known, but overseas Nintendo said it is planning new shipments for the northern hemisphere summer.

Production of the console, which also sold out soon after pre-orders went live, was originally scheduled to stop by the end of the year. However, the company said it will now continue into 2018.

“Fans have shown their unbridled enthusiasm for these Classic Edition systems, so Nintendo is working to put many more of them on store shelves,” Nintendo said in a statement.

As an indication of its planned supply, Nintendo said that the number of SNES Classic Edition consoles shipped on launch day in the US will be higher than the total number of NES Classic Editions shipped.
