Nintendo announces NES Classic Edition coming November 11, 2016


Nintendo of America has announced a retro system entitled the NES Classic Edition.  The Classic NES will be a a small retro console that comes with 30 games pre-installed.  The system will cost just $59.99 in the U.S.

The Mini retro console will connect to a TV via HDMI, and comes with a 1 NES Pad.  The NES Pad uses the same port as the Wii & Wii U, so it can also be used on both of those consoles.   The NES Classic Edition will also be able to use a Classic Controller or Classic Controller Pro.  However you can also purchase and additional NES pad for the low price of $9.99.

While this console will not give you the ability to play your classic carts, it does include many of the major ones you grew up with, and hopefully Nintendo has some plans to let us download additional titles in the future.
