While we’ve all been distracted by Pokemon GO, Nintendo has been working on a new surprise for lovers of nostalgia.
The Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition looks like a tiny version of the original, comes packed with 30 classic games, and will be hitting shelves in Australia on 10 November.
The $99.95 price tag will get you a classic styled controller, HDMI cable and USB cable along with the console. There’s no AC power adapter included, unlike the US model.
Here is a list of the included games, which will now come with suspend points so you don’t lose game progress (cheating, but whatever):
You’ll notice some of these are two player, so if you want to keep the classic styling going you’ll need to pick up an extra Nintendo Classic Mini: NES Controller for $19.95. A Classic Controller or Classic Controller Pro for the Wii console can also be used.
The controller can also be used to play Virtual Console NES games on a Wii U or Wii console by connecting to a Wii Remote controller.
What a time to be alive.
