While many of us are looking forward to seeing what Nintendo have up their sleeves with their upcoming NX console, the company surprised everyone today with a brand new console, the Mini Nintendo Entertainment System.
The Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System is a miniature version of the company’s first ever home console, and it’s set to launch this November, just in time for the holidays.
The console itself supports HDMI and comes with 30 NES games, out of the box. It’ll also come with a classic NES controller, a USB cable, a HDMI cable, and will cost just $60. An extra controller can also be purchased for $10. There’s currently no word on the UK pricing as yet. Players can also use a Classic Controller or Classic Controller Pro for the Wii console if they prefer.
What’s more, the Nintendo Classic Mini: NES Controller can also be used to play Virtual Console NES games on a Wii U or Wii console. All players need to do is connect it to a Wii Remote controller and off they go.
The Nintendo Classic Mini: NES Controller can also be used to play Virtual Console NES games on a Wii U or Wii console. Simply connect it to a Wii Remote controller to make the experience that much more authentic. Players needn’t worry about losing any hard-earned progress either as each game has multiple suspend points, allowing them to start where they left off at a later time, no passwords needed.
Bring back memories and make brand new ones with the Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System, launching on 11th November.
Oddly, the UK version doesn’t actually come with an AC adapter for the USB cable needed to actually power-on the device, but we have enough of those lying around for our phones, so it shouldn’t be that much of a big deal.
