New NES Console Announced
« on: July 14, 2016, 11:15:44 AM »

You are not dreaming, it's really real and nobody expect that happened. Nintendo announced the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition (Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System in Europe) today as a surprise. This small console includes the console itself (which is a replica of the original NES console) with HDMI output so you can play it on your big TV, an controller (which is also a replica of the original controller) that can also been use for the Wii and Wii U and 30 games including Super Mario Bros., Kirby's Adventure, Metroid, The Legend of Zelda, Donkey Kong and Pac-Man.

Here is the full list of the 30 games

The console will be released in both North America and Europe on November 11th for 60$. The controller will also be sold separatly for 9.99$. The North American version will have an AC adapter, while the European version (including UK) won't have one, but there is a USB port in the box.

Super C and Double Dragon II, but not the originals; StarTropics, but not the sequel; and Mega Man 2, but none of the others. Who decided this list?

I was excited until I found out it doesn't play the actual cartridges. Sigh.

This seems a little silly. I imagine a lot of people would just buy what they wanted off of the Virtual Console or use emulation.

Looking back at these responses, it's hilarious how few people think like us.
