Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System Out in November

Anyone that games will probably know that home consoles often get a slightly smaller, less power-hungry update half-way through the generation. While this current gen looks set to see a power increase too, that is how things have been for a while. Well, Nintendo has decided to revisit the 80s and announce the Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System, a scaled down NES that comes with 30 games stored inside.

Connect it to a HDTV via the included HDMI cable, find a power adapter for the USB cable (a power adaptor isn’t included, but the USB cable is) and plug-in the supplied controller, and away you go. If you fancy connecting a second controller for some multiplayer action, you can fit a couple of varieties of the Wii’s Classic Controllers if you happen to have one lying around, or simply purchase a second Nintendo Classic Mini: NES Controller. The new mini controller will also work in playing Virtual Console NES games on a Wii U or Wii.

Here is a list of the games inside:

  • 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
  • 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

The Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System launches on the 11th November, and various other websites are estimating that it will cost between £40-50. It looks a fun little console that contains a great selection of classic NES games, and I would imagine if it comes in at that price-point, it will prove very popular indeed.
