Yesterday Nintendo announced The Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System, a mini replica of the original Nintendo home console that gives the opportunity for new and veteran fans of Nintendo to relive some of the most iconic Nintendo titles of the 80’s.
The Classic Mini comes with an easy plug and play set up, included is:
1x HDMI cable
1x USB cable to power the device
1x Mini NES controller
…and last but not least the Nintendo Classic Mini Console built in with 30 of Nintendo’s most finest titles, which are:
Balloon Fight, Bubble Bobble, Castlevania, Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest, Donkey Kong Donkey Kong Jr, Double Dragon: The Revenge, Dr.Mario, Excitebike, Final Fantasy,Galaga, Ghosts’N Goblins, Gradius, Ice Climber, Kid Icarus, Kirby’s Adventure, Mario Bros, MEGA MAN 2, Metroid, Ninja Gaiden, Pac-Man, Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream, StarTropics, Super C , Super Mario Bros, Super Mario Bros 2, Super Mario Bros, Tecmo Bowl, The Legend of Zelda and Zelda II: The Adventure of Link.
One thing to mention is that veteran fans will be relieved to hear that there will be an option to save their progress rather than start all over again from the beginning of each game.
As most would know, the earlier Nintendo consoles did not have a save function and required players to write down passwords to return them back to where they left off, or leave their consoles on all night to continue on. If they misplaced the password… well unfortunately it would mean back to level one.
Thankfully with the option to save, we can say
to those passwords.
Unfortunately, the system only includes one controller however there will be an option to purchase 2 different types of controllers, either the normal Classic Controller or the Classic Controller Pro for the Wii Console (SRP AU19.95), which is a part of the Mini’s unique feature to play the classic titles through the Wii or Wii U consoles.
The Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System is set to be released in Australia on November 10 at a suggested retail price of AU$99.95. Also to note, unusually, an AC adapter for the USB cable which is required to play the system is not being included in the packaging.
