Nintendo have announced that a new, smaller version of the Nintendo Entertainment System will be releasing later this year.
Named the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition, the console will come ready-loaded with 30 classic NES titles, alongside a loyal replica of the rectangular NES controller. It’s also a mere fraction of the system’s original size, fitting neatly into the palm of your hand.
You’ll be able to connect the new system to your TV via a HDMI cable. The new NES controller will also connect to a Wii Remote, allowing players to use it when playing Virtual Console games on the Wii and Wii U.
Another nifty addition to the pint-sized console is multiple save points, so you can dive straight back into the Classic’s 30 games without punching in passwords.
The NES Classic Edition will release on November 11 2016 for $59.99 (that’s about £45 for those in the UK, though an official price is yet to be announced).
Exactly which games will be included on the system were also divulged, and they are;
- Balloon Fight
