Nintendo has announced a “new” console which is sure to delight retro players because it’s actually a big throwback to the original NES!
First revealed on the Nintendo of America Twitter earlier this afternoon, the Mini NES can be connected to a TV with HDMI lead which is included and will get its power from an USB lead to a mains adaptor. It’s also bundled in its retro packaging with one classic NES style controller – a second can be purchased separately to enjoy two-person and co-op classic gaming!
Unfortunately the consoles cartridge port is just for show, and original games can’t be popped in. However, just looking at the line-up shows that despite the console being short of stature you won’t be short of any fun. It’s a virtual hall of fame of games:
- Balloon Fight
- BUBBLE BOBBLE
- Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest
- Donkey Kong
- Donkey Kong Jr.
- DOUBLE DRAGON II: THE REVENGE
- Dr. Mario
- FINAL FANTASY
- GHOSTS‘N GOBLINS
- Ice Climber
- Kid Icarus
- Kirby’s Adventure
- Mario Bros.
- MEGA MAN 2
- NINJA GAIDEN
- Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream
- SUPER C
- Super Mario Bros.
- Super Mario Bros. 2
- Super Mario Bros. 3
- Tecmo Bowl
