Nes Classic Mini

Nintendo surprises the Internet with a mini version of Nintendo Entertainment System.

The Internet went abuzz with the announcement of the NES Classic edition based on its first major videogame system released almost 30 years ago. It made our best toys 2021 list. The console will be palm-sized so that it can fit in the palm of your hand. The system certainly will bring a strong sense of nostalgia for die-hard gamers who have played the original Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) home console.

The system will feature 30 top hits and will retail for an affordable $60 MSRP. It is expected to be released this November – just in time for the holidays. Unfortunately, beyond the pre-installed games, you won’t be able to download additional games as the cartridge slot doesn’t open. It is merely for aesthetics. The system also won’t be able to connect to the Internet and download games.

The game lineup featured delivers a diverse mix of popular and recognizable NES games appealing to a wide array of gamers. Everyone should be able to discover several great games to enjoy in this assortment. Here is a full listing of the included games:

This is a great collector’s item or gift for old-school gamers and based on the internet’s reaction it’s expected to be in high demand this holiday.
