Nintendo Has A New (Mini) NES With 30 Built-In Games

While we’ve all been distracted by Pokemon GO, Nintendo has been working on a new surprise for lovers of nostalgia.

The Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition looks like a tiny version of the original, comes packed with 30 classic games, and will be hitting shelves in Australia on 10 November.

The $99.95 price tag will get you a classic styled controller, HDMI cable and USB cable along with the console. There’s no AC power adapter included, unlike the US model.

Here is a list of the included games, which will now come with suspend points so you don’t lose game progress (cheating, but whatever):

  • 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
  • You’ll notice some of these are two player, so if you want to keep the classic styling going you’ll need to pick up an extra Nintendo Classic Mini: NES Controller for $19.95. A Classic Controller or Classic Controller Pro for the Wii console can also be used.

    The controller can also be used to play Virtual Console NES games on a Wii U or Wii console by connecting to a Wii Remote controller.

    What a time to be alive.
