Finally, Nintendo has answered some frequently asked questions after they announced and introduced NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) Mini to the world. The image of the latest NES would probably bring some nostalgia-filled memories back in you due to the design of this new piece of old hardware. And that’s what they are aiming for.
“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,” Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime said in a statement. “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.”
Remember how we used to collect those game cartridges before? It was the most awesome collection we could have back then. But Nintendo hasn’t said much regarding the underlying hardware of the NES Mini but we’re pretty sure its new system will not be exactly like the original NES. Also, they did not mention about the ability to plug in old NES game cartridges, even though pictures show a familiar, cartridge slot dust-cover styled on the system’s boxy case.The system will not accept any external media, connect to the Internet, or ever officially support anything other than the 30 games included.
The new system will also not support old NES controllers natively. Instead, it has slots that will fit the existing Wii Classic Controller Pro and will also work with a new NES Classic Controller patterned after the original rectangular design (sorry dog-bone fans). One Classic Controller will be included with the system; extra ones will retail for $9.99.
The NES Classic Edition, is a palm-sized, HDMI-equipped re-release of the ’80s console that will launch on November 11, preloaded with 30 games for $59.99.
Here are the 30 games that will be included on the NES Classic Edition:
1. Balloon Fight
4.Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest
6.Donkey Kong Jr.
7.Double Dragon II: The Revenge
12.Ghosts N’ Goblins
