NES Classic Edition Mini Console Announced – Launches This Holiday Season
Nintendo just announced a mini replica console of the Nintendo Entertainment System! Titled the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition, the console, pictured below, fits in the palm of your hand. It is set to launch in North America on November 11, 2016. Retailing for $59.99, the mini console includes an HDMI cable, AC Adapter, NES replica controller, and 30 built-in games.
These are the following titles included with the NES Classic Edition:
Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest™
Donkey Kong Jr. ™
DOUBLE DRAGON II: THE REVENGE
Mario Bros. ™
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™
In addition, the replica NES controller will be sold separately for $9.99. You can connect this controller to the NES Classic Edition for some 2-player action, or you can attach the controller to the bottom of a Wii Remote to use on Virtual Console games as well.
I’m surprised Nintendo hasn’t released something like this sooner! I think this will sell quite well, as it appeals to both gamers that grew up with the NES, as well as collectors!
