Nintendo Announces Mini NES

One of the most iconic game systems if not the most iconic game systems in history is making a come back. People like myself who grew up in the 80s and 90s rejoice because a huge piece of our childhood is coming back to store shelves. Nintendo announced today that they plan to release a mini version of the classic Nintendo Entertainment System. For some reason this wasn’t something that Nintendo felt was worthy of showing at their E3 conference but I’m still glad that they are giving it to us.

The Mini NES will cost $60 US and come with 30 pre-loaded classic Nintendo games. The system will also come with an HDMI cable so we can now play these awesome games on modern TVs, a power adapter, and a Classic NES Controller. It’s been a while since I’ve held one of those things in my hand so I can only imagine it will feel weird gaming on it, compared to the sleek ergonomic controllers that we have become so use to. Below is a list of the 30 classic games that will come pre-installed on it. The Mini NES is set to hit shelves November 11 of this year.
