Nintendo is launching a mini NES console with 30 games built in this fall

July 14th, 2016 at 8:50 AM
NES Classic Edition Price Release Date

It turns out that Nintendo is launching new hardware this year after all! On Thursday morning, Nintendo announced the NES Classic Edition — a miniature version of the original Nintendo Entertainment System which will cost $59.99 when it launches on November 11th, 2016.

Although the mini console looks nearly identical to its original counterpart, there are some key difference between the NES and the NES Classic Edition. For one, the Classic Edition connects to your TV via an HDMI cable, giving modern gamers with HDTVs a chance to play some of Nintendo’s very first games.

Along with an HDMI cable, the package also includes an AC adapter and an NES Classic Controller (modeled after the original NES controller). Plus, the console comes preloaded with 30 games (which we’ve listed below).

Once you’re done playing NES games on your Classic Edition console, you can then connect the Classic Controller to your Wii Remote in order to play Virtual Console games on your Wii or Wii U. Even if you decide not to pick up the mini NES, you should be able to buy a Classic Controller separately for $9.99 this fall.

Here’s the complete list of 30 games that come preloaded on the console:

  • Balloon Fight
  • Castlevania
  • Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest
  • Donkey Kong
  • Donkey Kong Jr.
  • Dr. Mario
  • Excitebike
  • Galaga
  • Ice Climber
  • Kid Icarus
  • Kirby’s Adventure
  • Mario Bros.
  • MEGA MAN® 2
  • Metroid
  • Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream
  • StarTropics
  • Super Mario Bros.
  • Super Mario Bros. 2
  • Super Mario Bros. 3
  • The Legend of Zelda
  • Zelda II: The Adventure of Link
