Nintendo considering further Famicom Mini titles

Only a couple of weeks after the third wave of Famicom Mini titles - known in the west as the NES Classics series - hit Japanese retailers, Nintendo has hinted that it is gauging interest in a fourth series of the budget GBA releases. "With the third series released to the market on the 10th, we believe interest was temporarily settled," according to a Nintendo spokesperson quoted in a Japanese newspaper report. However, he went on to say that "it's the responsibility of the company to respond if there's demand from users."

The third edition of the Famicom Mini games - which included classics from the Disk System range for the first time, along with NES best-sellers Zelda II: Adventure of Link and Super Mario Bros. 2 - sold some 358,000 copies across the ten titles included in its first week on sale, making it the most popular of the three waves of re-releases.
