SNES Classic: With 2m sold, what does Nintendo do next?

With Nintendo's latest round of financial results comes the opportunity to update all of us on how the SNES Classic Edition is doing.

Yes, SNES Classic controllers work with the NES Classic (and vice versa)

The SNES Classic Edition will arrive later this week, and I spent the weekend positioned in front my review unit, reliving my childhood with Final Fantasy III.
