Nintendo to launch mini-NES console with 30 classic games
Gamers of the ’90s will experience a sudden rush of nostalgia, as gaming giant Nintendo announced it’s bringing back the iconic Nintendo Entertainment System (NES)—in a much smaller form.
The NES classic edition will retain its retro design and serve as a “mini-replica” of the original gaming platform, according to TechCrunch.
Apart from its compact feature, the popular console will come with 30 built-in games including classics like Super Mario Bros. 1, 2 and 3, The Legend Of Zelda, Punch Out, Final Fantasy, Donkey Kong and Bubble Bobble.
The console will be able to connect to a TV via an HDMI cable. It will also include a controller designed to work just like the original rectangular NES gamepad. The new controller is compatible with a Wii Remote, and can be used to play virtual console games on a Wii or Wii U.
In addition to HDMI support and minimal cartridges, the returning mini-console will also feature multiple suspend points for users, which will make password security a lot easier.
Nintendo will roll out the NES Classic Edition on Nov. 11. It will be priced at $59.99 (P2,812.96). Khristian Ibarrola
