With Pokémon GO taking over the world in the last few weeks, if there’s one thing we’ve learnt from all of it, it’s that the appetite for classic gaming is a strong as ever. Which is why we think geeks around the world (and we include ourselves in that bracket) will rejoice at the new Nintendo are rereleasing the iconic NES!

Nintendo NES Classic Edition

The Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition, to give it its fully name, looks and plays just like a regular NES, only a lot smaller. But the best bit about it all is that it comes with 30 games already built in. We’re talking Donkey Kong, Super Mario Brothers and even Zelda!

The miniature NES Classic connects to your TV via a standard HDMI cable, and it also comes with a controller designed to work just like the iconic rectangular NES gamepad. Interesting, Nintendo also say the new controller will connect to a Wii Remote, so you can use it to play Virtual Console games on a Wii or Wii U!

The NES Classic also features another extremely useful modern convenience: each game has multiple suspend points, so you can start where you left off at a later time, no passwords needed.

The NES Classic Edition will be available on 11th November this year and will just cost an incredibly reasonable £59.99. You’ll even be able to pick up a second controller for just £10. The full list of the games including can be found below;
