Nintendo Classic Mini - NES coming November 11th
For American and European audiences comes the Nintendo Classic Mini - NES, a reproduction of the beloved 8-bit console that's arriving November 11th. While it doesn't use cartridges, it comes installed with 30 different games for the price of $60. The game list is as follows:
Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest
Donkey Kong Jr.
Double Dragon II: The Revenge
Ghosts n' Goblins
Mega Man 2
Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream
Super Mario Bros.
Super Mario Bros. 2
Super Mario Bros. 3
The Legend of Zelda
Zelda II: The Adventure of Link
Also packed with the system is a NES Classic controller, which as the name implies is a replica of the original controller. These will also be sold separately for $9.99, and can be compatible with NES VC games on Wii and Wii U when connected to a Wii Remote. Wii Classic Controllers and Wii U Classic Controller Pro can also be used with the system.
To further capitalize on the nostalgia, it'll also come packaged with an AC adapter; however, a HDMI cable has also been confirmed to arrive with the system. No trailer was accompanied with the announcement, so we'll have to wait to see how these retro games are enhanced via HD.
Finally, each game will allow for numerous save states, so you won't have to rely on annoying passwords to continue your game -- though assume you can still use them if you want.
We'll keep on eye on more related news as the Nintendo Classic Mini - NES nears its release date. In the meantime, you can check out the amusing press release here.
