Nintendo Is Bringing The NES Back To Stores This Fall

by Rob BogganJuly 14, 2016

Nintendo is re-releasing the console that started it all for gamers across the world. 

Beginning November 11th, nostalgic gamers will be able to pick up the Mini NES Classic for $59.99. Coming off one of the most successful gaming releases ever with Pokemon GO! Nintendo looks to keep the hits rolling with the release of the Mini NES Classic. The Mini NES will operate similar to the original system, but will also have a few modern updates for convenience. The console will be capable of connecting to a TV or monitor by way of a HDMI cable. The Mini NES Classic will also come with support for micro save points so you don’t have to worry about losing your progress if you quit a game. The console will come with 30 games preloaded, and will include several classics like Donkey Kong, Excitebike, and Super Mario Bros. 1 – 3. Nintendo will also be including one classic controller that can be connected to a Wii Remote for use as a controller for Virtual Console games on Wii or Wii U. Buyers can also purchase additional controllers for $9.99.

I’m a huge fan of retro Nintendo gaming and the announcement of this console has me all sorts of excited! There’s been no official word on if this console will release in other countries or not, but for now it’s safe to assume this will be a US only release.
