Say Hello to the Nintendo Classic Mini

Coming November

Nintendo had put a new post up on their Facebook page revealing the Nintendo Classic Mini, a tiny version of the original NES with 30 games built in.


The new compact NES is stated as “coming to stores on November 11th” just in time for the Christmas present list.

“Relive the 80s when the Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System launches in stores on 11th November. The classic NES is back in a familiar-yet-new form as a mini replica of Nintendo’s original home console. Plugging directly into a high-definition TV using the included HDMI cable, the console comes complete with 30 NES games built-in, including beloved classics like Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Donkey Kong, PAC-MAN and Kirby’s Adventure.”

As well as 30 built-in games, the console comes with an HDMI cable, a USB cable for powering the device, and one mini NES controller. You should note though that an AC adapter for the USB cable is required to play the console but not included in the bundle.


“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.”

The games included are as follows:
