Nintendo Classic Mini - NES coming November 11th

A NES reproduction will launch in stores this November! Coming with 30 different games, it'll also launch with NES controller replicas and HD support.

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:

Balloon Fight
Bubble Bobble
Castlevania
Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest
Donkey Kong
Donkey Kong Jr.
Double Dragon II: The Revenge
Dr. Mario
Excitebike
Final Fantasy
Galaga
Ghosts n' Goblins
Gradius
Ice Climber
Kid Icarus
Kirby’s Adventure
Mario Bros.
Mega Man 2
Metroid
Ninja Gaiden
Pac-Man
Punch-Out!!  Featuring Mr. Dream
StarTropics
Super C
Super Mario Bros.
Super Mario Bros.  2
Super Mario Bros.  3
Tecmo Bowl
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.

    I would probably be more excited for this if I didn't still have a NES (that was recently repaired, even), but this is a great buy for anyone who doesn't have one and wants to have a small but decent NES library (only $60, too!).

    Hopefully this will force some retro resellers to lower their prices on these titles, too. As it stands buying physical copies of all these games is very expensive, almost all of them are over $20 each sans Mario.
