All aboard the Nostalgia train!
Its that time again as Nintendo will be introducing a new console this year but nothing that you may have expected. As of November 11th 2016, you will be able to buy a NES again called “NES Classic Edition”. This time the console doesn’t cost ridiculous amounts of money nor does it take up a large amount of space like it once did.
We wanted to give fans of all ages the opportunity to revisit Nintendo’s original system and rediscover why they fell in love with Nintendo in the first place – Nintendo of America COO Reggie Fils-Aime.
So, what do we know? The NES Classic Edition will be miniature in size where it can fit in the palm of your hand and will be available for $59.99 (~£45). The console will be able to connect to your fancy modern TVs as it has a HDMI port. Along with the new video-out upgrade, in the box it comes with:
- A HDMI Cable
- An AC Adapter
- A Classic NES Controller – Patterned after the iconic original design
Additional controllers will be available to purchase for $9.99 (~£7.50) although there is a chance that old controller you have collecting dust in a box somewhere may work as well, it is always worth a shot! If you are a Wii owner,you can connect the NES Classic Controller to a Wii Remote for use with Virtual NES games on a Wii U or Wii.
The Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition is ideal for anyone who remembers playing the NES, or who wants to pass on those nostalgic memories to the next generation of gamers – Nintendo of America COO Reggie Fils-Aime.
