Nintendo may plan to follow up the success with the NES Classic by giving the same treatment to the SNES. According to Eurogamer, Nintendo has plans to release a mini version of the SNES in time for the holiday season later this year. This may have been one of the reasons why the NES Classic has been discontinued.

Nintendo claimed it never intended NES mini to be a permanent product. The NES Classic was just planned as a novelty item perfect for the past holiday season, and the numbers in which it was manufactured and shipped were expected to be enough to suit this goal. However with the overwhelming success of the NES Classic led to the microconsole being sold out in retailers. NES Classic continued to ship into the early part of this year, but its production run could not be extended further.

The SNES classic is expected to get the same treatment as the NES Classic, as a mini version of the console pre-loaded with SNES classics. Hopefully Nintendo will be able to keep up with demand this time around.
