Nintendo Reveals The Mini NES

Banking hard of the old school feels of nostalgia, Nintendo has revealed the Mini NES system which allows modern gamers to play a hearty selection of games from the 80’s.

Launching on November 11th for 60 bucks, the console comes with 30 built in NES games (listed below), one controller and and  HDMI output for crystal clear pixel reproduction. The system will cost $60 and additional controllers (one included) will cost 10 bucks each. That rounds out to about $2 per game, if you’re negating the cost of the unit itself.

The interesting bit here is that the system is tiny, fitting nicely in the palm of the hand, and it has no ability to actually accept carts. There is also no internet connectivity, so adding additional games in the future is impossible. You get what you get with this one. That’s not neccesarily a bad thing, but it’s an odd decision for Nintendo to limit themselves to not selling future games, unless they plan to release later versions with different games, which is entirely possible.

The game selection is pretty solid, including fan favorites like Mario 1-3, Castlevania, and Ninja Gaiden. Oddly, it includes Super C, but not the original Contra. A curious choice.
