Nostalgia’s a funny thing, really. It makes people do things or want things that they really shouldn’t. and right now, I REALLY, REALLY WANT THIS MINI NES.

Yes, Nintendo is making a mini Nintendo console stuffed with 30 classic games that will help you relive the memories of an age past. Yes, you could emulate these games or probably get many of them on the Virtual console, but this official mini NES just makes me want to hug things.

“We wanted to give fans of all ages the opportunity to revisit Nintendo’s original system and rediscover why they fell in love with Nintendo in the first place,” said Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime. “The Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition is ideal for anyone who remembers playing the NES, or who wants to pass on those nostalgic memories to the next generation of gamers.”

The system comes packaged with an HDMI cable, an AC adapter and one NES Classic Controller. It’s coming to the US on November 11 at a price of $59.99 – and will hit Europe as well.

Here’s the list of 30 games loaded on the system:

  • Balloon Fight
  • BUBBLE BOBBLE
  • Castlevania
  • Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest
  • Donkey Kong
  • Donkey Kong Jr. 
  • DOUBLE DRAGON II: THE REVENGE
  • Dr. Mario
  • Excitebike
  • FINAL FANTASY
  • Galaga
  • GHOSTS’N GOBLINS

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
