Retro consoles making a comeback

If you enjoy gaming, you’ll love this retro innovation from Nintendo.

Relive the 1980s when the Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System launches in November. The classic NES is back in a familiar-yet-new form as a mini replica of Nintendo’s original home console. Plugging directly into a high-definition TV, the console comes with 30 NES games built-in, including beloved classics such as Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Donkey Kong, PAC-MAN and Kirby’s Adventure.

The Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System comes with an HDMI cable, a USB cable for powering the system, and one Nintendo Classic Mini: NES Controller. And whether it’s rediscovering an old favourite or experiencing the joy of NES for the first time, the fantastic collection of NES classics with each system should have something for all players.

It’s priced at just $60 with extra NES controllers costing $10. The controller can be attached to a Wii remote for use with the Virtual Console on the Wii or Wii U. Games come with ‘multiple suspend points’, allowing you to save your progress.

Each title is sure to bring back fond memories and produce plenty of new ones. Players can even enjoy playing many of these games together by attaching a second Nintendo Classic Mini: NES Controller.
