The Nintendo NES Classic Edition Is Here & It Is ALL OF THE CUTE
So much retro gaming goodness.
Nintendo has announced that it is going to release a new version of what *some* say is the greatest console of all time, the NES. It’s called the Nintendo NES Classic Edition and will come pre-loaded with loads of gaming goodness.
Nintendo will launch the new-old console on 11 November priced at $60 - or about £45. It looks just like the original, only a teeny tiny version. CUTE. It has working buttons and ports but the gaming slot no longer takes cartridges as all the games are already built into the console’s memory. Oooh!
The NES Classic Edition will come with a controller plus 30 games pre-installed so you get plenty of bang for your buck. You can buy another controller for $10 or, if you have one, a Classic Controller or Classic Controller Pro - which were released already for the Wii and Wii U - can also be used.
Pricing has not been announced for the UK yet.
Games that come built into the console include, deep breath:
Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest
Donkey Kong Jr.
Double Dragon II: The Revenge
Mega Man 2
Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream
Super Mario Bros.
Super Mario Bros. 2
Super Mario Bros. 3
The Legend of Zelda
