It turns out that Nintendo is going to release new hardware later this year and to the delight of fans everywhere it’s going to bring back the NES, however, the iconic console is coming back on a much smaller scale. Nintendo today announced the Nintendo Entertainment System Classic Edition. It’s very tiny compared to the original NES and comes with 30 classic games built in.
The NES Classic Edition can be connected to the TV via HDMI. The mini-console also comes with a controller that has been designed to work with the rectangular NES gamepad. The new controller can also be connected to a Nintendo Wii Remote so that it can be used to play Virtual Console games on Wii or Wii U.
Built-in games and HDMI support isn’t the only modern aspect of this console. It also has multiple suspend points which means players won’t have to keep track of passwords when they start playing a game again.
Nintendo is going to release the NES Classic Edition on November 11th this year for $59.99. The full list of games available for this mini-console can be found below.
