According to BGR, Nintendo is preparing to launch a new throwback product this year. Earlier today the company announced that the NES Classic Edition will be released on November 11th. This will be a miniature version of the old school Nintendo console that we all know and love. The product will retail for $59.99 when it hits stores.
There will be some differences between the new console and the old one though:
For one, the Classic Edition connects to your TV via an HDMI cable, giving modern gamers with HDTVs a chance to play some of Nintendo’s very first games. Along with an HDMI cable, the package also includes an AC adapter and an NES Classic Controller (modeled after the original NES controller). Plus, the console comes preloaded with 30 games (which we’ve listed below).
There are also options for those who want to connect their Classic Edition to their Wii:
Once you’re done playing NES games on your Classic Edition console, you can then connect the Classic Controller to your Wii Remote in order to play Virtual Console games on your Wii or Wii U. Even if you decide not to pick up the mini NES, you should be able to buy a Classic Controller separately for $9.99 this fall.
Here’s the complete list of 30 games that come preloaded on the console:
Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest™
Donkey Kong Jr. ™
DOUBLE DRAGON II: THE REVENGE
Mario Bros. ™
MEGA MAN® 2
Punch-Out!! ™ Featuring Mr. Dream
Super Mario Bros.™
