Nintendo is clearly trying to maximize the revenue it can generate before the NX console/handheld releases next year. Right now we have Pokemon Go, which is earning millions, and will likely continue to do so for the rest of this year. But come November, your gaming attention will be turned elsewhere as Nintendo is re-releasing the NES.
36 years after the original Nintendo Entertainment System hit store shelves a brand new model is set to launch. This one is called the Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System, but unlike the original you won’t be purchasing physical games on cartridges to play. The Mini NES ships with 30 of the best built-in.
Here’s the complete list of games included with the machine:
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 Gobline
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
As well as the mini console and games, the package includes an NES controller. It’s unclear if this is exactly the same as the original NES controller, but it certainly looks the same from the packaging shots. It’s also compatible with the Wii and Wii U for playing Virtual Console NES game.

You’ll also be pleased to hear the Mini NES connects to a TV using HDMI, it includes a HDMI cable, and power is achieved through an included USB cable and AC adapter, although if you’re buying in the UK you’ll need to supply a USB AC adapter as it doesn’t ship with one.
The Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System is set to go on sale on November 11 for $59.99. That’s a mighty tempting price for a gaming nostalgia trip. It should hold us over until Nintendo’s future arrives.
