NES Classic Edition Mini
The past few years has been trying to hit us right in the heart of our childhood. Things like the new Star Wars movies and even Pokemon Go has allowed us to visit our childhood again. This is possible with the help of new technology. Well, another one of these things is about to commence and that is the rebirth of the NES (short for Nintendo Entertainment System). This Classic is smaller, faster, cheaper, and cuter than ever.
The new NES Classic Mini is a smaller version of the original NES having the same external design, even extending out to the design of the controller. The old-new console will have an HDMI port so that you can play your favorite 80’s games on a modern TV with no trouble.
PreLoaded With The Classics
Probably the coolest things about the NES Classic Edition (or the “Classic Mini”) is that it comes with 30 games pre-loaded which means that there are no cartridges to have to blow into or other accessories to buy. You just plug in and take a ride through your early years. The NES Classic Edition will start shipping on November 11 of this year (just in time for the holidays). It will, surprisingly, cost only $60, £50 pounds if you’re in the UK, and $100 if you’re in Australia.
Unfortunately, no cartridge slot means that you can’t use any of your old cartridges that you’ve held on to for so many years. The controller is also different. You can’t use old controllers because there is now a different port. This port is the same one that you can find on the bottom of a Wii controller. For a 2-player game, one can connect a Wii Classic Controller.
The NES Classic Mini will include games like all the Super Mario Bros. (1, 2, and 3), The Legend of Zelda (and Zelda II: The Adventure of Link), Pac-Man, Mario Bros. Dr. Mario, Bubble Bobble, Donkey Kong (and Donkey Kong Jr.), Kirby’s Adventure, Mega Man 2, Metroid, Galaga, Final Fantasy, Balloon Fight, and much more. Sadly, some of the games that won’t come with the NES Mini include Battletoads, Bionic Commando, Contra, and Castlevania III.
