Gaming giants Nintendo have announced an upcoming remake of their first game console, the NES. The console is said to be released on November 11th 2016, and will include 30 built in classics to use instead of having a cartridge based system, these will include titles like Donkey Kong, Megaman 2 and Super Mario Bros. The console remake is of a much smaller size, so is being sold as a miniature console retailing at $59.99 on launch day. An item like this is like gold to any collector. And we can see it will be a huge hit from the feedback from Nintendo’s fan-base.
Nintendo say that “We wanted to give fans of all ages the opportunity to revisit Nintendo’s original system and rediscover why they fell in love with Nintendo in the first place.” this to me sounds like a great opportunity for Nintendo as they can show their younger audience some real nostalgia, and what it was like at the dawn of video gaming ages.
Classic controllers will also be sold separately for 9.99, but owners of the Wii or Wii U classic controllers will be able to use those as they are compatible with the micro console.
