Nintendo Announce Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System

It’s a retro gamers dream to hear this but Nintendo have announced that they are released a Nintendo Classic Mini which is a replica of the original NES console but loaded with 30 classic NES games including Super Mario Bros, The Legend of Zelda, and Pac-Man.

When we can sit around talking about classic NES games for hours, we were thrilled to hear about the release of this replica NES.

Due to hit stores on 11th 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 your TV using the included HDMI cable, the console comes packaged with one Nintendo Classic Mini: NES Controller.


Players can even enjoy playing many of these games together by attaching a second Nintendo Classic Mini: NES Controller, sold separately. A Classic Controller or Classic Controller Pro for the Wii console can also be used.

The Nintendo Classic Mini: NES Controller can also be used to play Virtual Console NES games on a Wii U or Wii console. Simply connect it to a Wii Remote controller to make the experience that much more authentic. Players needn’t worry about losing any hard-earned progress either as each game has multiple suspend points, allowing them to start where they left off at a later time, no passwords needed.


As a Retro gamer myself, It has inspired me to dig out the original NES console from the garage and get it loaded up to the TV.

Bring back the 8-bit gaming. As soon as we get our hands on one of these, we’ll be sure to do a review
