KYOTO, Japan -- Fresh of the success of Pokemon Go, Nintendo is launching another retro gaming product for the holiday shopping season -- a mini Nintendo Entertainment System with 30 classic games built in.
The Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition will hit stores on Nov. 11 at a suggested retail price of $59.99.
The mini replica of Nintendo’s original home console plugs directly into your high-definition TV using an included HDMI cable, and includes beloved classics like Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Donkey Kong, PAC-MAN and Kirby’s Adventure.
“We wanted to give fans of all ages the opportunity to revisit Nintendo’s original system and rediscover why they fell in love with Nintendo in the first place,” said Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime. “The Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition is ideal for anyone who remembers playing the NES, or who wants to pass on those nostalgic memories to the next generation of gamers.”
The system comes packaged with an HDMI cable, an AC adapter and one NES Classic Controller, which is patterned after the iconic original NES controller. A second classic controller will be sold separately at a suggested retail price of $9.99.
When connected to a Wii Remote controller, the NES Classic Controller can also be used to play Virtual Console NES games on a Wii U or Wii system.
If you ever need to step away from one of the classic games you don’t have to worry about losing any hard-earned progress. Each game has multiple suspend points, so you can start where you left off at a later time.
