NES Classic Edition - Today's Modern And Miniaturized Nintendo Entertainment System That Fits In The Palm Of Your Hand

NES Classic Edition Todays Modern And Miniaturized Nintendo Entertainment System That Fits In The Palm Of Your Hand
If you're like me and grew up in the 80's and 90's, chances are you remember those wonderful days of playing Super Mario Bros. among many classic titles on the original Nintendo Entertainment System. I recall plopping down in front of a 13-inch tube TV with friends and enjoying hours of fun staring at the blocky animations as we played each game. The 8-bit video game system was a huge hit around the world as it hit shelves between 1983 and 1986.

Fast forward to 2016, around 30 years later and Nintendo is releasing their classic console with a modern twist. The NES Classic Edition is set to release on November 11, 2016 for $59.99. It's a miniaturized version of the original console that includes 1 controller, 30 preloaded classic games and an HDMI hookup to look perfect in high definition. You may also wonder if the cartridge door opens? It doesn't, which not only saves us all from blowing air into cartridges, but the streamlined machine will take up minimal space in your home! Need another controller? No problem, a second controller will only set you back $10. And lastly, you'll be able to save game progress, how great is that?!

With all that being said, I'm excited about it's release and will be picking one up myself. Will you?


Now let's have a look at the classic games that come pre-installed in the console:

The Pre-Installed Game List:

  • Mario Bros.

NES Classic Edition Nintendo Entertainment System And Controller
Personally, I'm looking forward to playing through many of these classic titles. One downside I see to this system is that it will be unable to connect to the internet, therefore adding other games to the console will be non existent. While this may sound disappointing to many, I don't see it as being a huge issue. Breaking down what you get by the numbers, each game will cost you around $2 with this mini system. If you purchased these 30 titles on the Wii Virtual Console, each would cost $5 and total around $150. In short, if you see yourself playing a minimum of 12 of these titles, it's worth the investment!

As an additional thought, I would love it if they released a Super Nintendo mini in the future! Will that be on the horizon?
