Update 2: Added 80s-inspired trailer!
Nintendo announced today that it will be releasing a mini-console Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) that will include 30 classic games.
The micro-console, dubbed the NES Classic Edition, will release on November 11, 2016 for $59.99 and include the following 30 games built-in:
NES Classic Edition Games:
Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest
Donkey Kong Jr.
Double Dragon II: The Revenge
Ghosts N Goblins
Mega Man 2
Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream
Super Mario Bros.
Super Mario Bros. 2
Super Mario Bros. 3
The Legend of Zelda
Zelda II: The Adventure of Link
The tiny console will plug directly into the TV via an included HDMI cable. It will include an AC adapter, but Nintendo says the UK version will require players to buy the adapter separately. The system will come bundled with a custom NES controller, designed specifically for this system and additional controllers will run $9.99 each.
The console also works with Classic Controllers and Classic Controller Pros if you have any of those lying around. Perhaps, the best part is that connecting the mini-console’s included controller (or by buying a separate controller) to a Wii remote will allow virtual console Wii and Wii U games to be played with the classic style NES controller.
“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,” Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime said in a statement.
