2 min read

Nintendo is riding high lately with the smash success of the recently launched Pokemon Go. Now the company is pulling the nostalgia card yet again with the announcement of the NES Classic Edition, a tiny version of the company’s original console. With 30 games out of the box, the NES Classic Edition wants to let us all relive the good ol’ days of playing our favorite classic Nintendo games without digging an old system out of the closet.

The NES Classic Edition will come pre-loaded with hit games such as all three original Super Mario Bros games, The Legend Of Zelda, Final Fantasy, Metroid, Donkey Kong, Pac-Man, and many more.

Sadly this console won’t be able to download more games down the road, so what you see is what you get. A full list of games follows.

You’ll also get an AC adapter and HDMI cable in the box all for just $59.99. Not bad for what you’re getting! The NES Classic Edition will launch this November in the US and UK.
