/ Jul 15th, 2016 No Comments

NES Classic

Nintendo announced the NES Classic Edition, a new take on one of its most classic consoles, will release on Nov. 11 for $59.99.

NES Classic Edition is a smaller version of the Nintendo Entertainment System, the first console released in North America back in 1985.

The console will connect to a TV via an HDMI cable. It will include a controller similar in appearance and function to the original NES controller. The controller will also connect to a Wii Remote so players can use it for Virtual Console games on a Wii or Wii U console. Players will be able to able to use save states to resume a game where they left off, rather than having to start fresh or use a password like typical NES games from nearly 30 years ago.

30 games will come pre-installed on the NES Classic. They represent some of Nintendo’s most popular series from the company’s history and classic games from that era. Players can expect the likes of Mega Man, Metroid, Zelda, Mario, and more.

Here is the complete list of games:

  • Balloon Fight
  • Bubble Bobble
  • Castlevania
  • Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest
  • Donkey Kong
  • Donkey Kong Jr.
  • Double Dragon II: The Revenge
  • Dr. Mario
  • Excitebike
  • Final Fantasy
  • Galaga
  • Ghosts’N Goblins
  • Gradius
  • Ice Climber
  • Kid Icarus
  • Kirby’s Adventure
  • Mario Bros.
  • Mega Man 2
  • Metroid
  • Ninja Gaiden
  • Pac-Man
  • Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream
  • StarTropics
  • Super C
  • Super Mario Bros.
  • Super Mario Bros. 2
  • Super Mario Bros. 3
  • Tecmo Bowl
  • The Legend of Zelda
  • Zelda II: The Adventure of Link
  • Quick Take

    Nintendo obviously recognizes the importance of its legacy. Games like The Legend of Zelda and Super Mario have cemented a place in the vocabulary of nearly every gamer. The recent success of Pokemon Go and now the NES Classic feel like moves meant to capitalize on nostalgia and past successes. It’s just a shame that Nintendo has more or less abandoned the Wii U and is filling the time between now and the NX release for simpler (and likely more profitable) ventures.
