Even as Nintendo is riding high on the current breakout popularity of the Pokémon Go augmented reality game, the company looks to its past for an upcoming release: the revival of the beloved NES, rendered in a miniature size that connects to your modern TV with an HDMI cable. Retailing for $59.99, the NES Classic Edition will come complete with 30 NES games built in, including beloved classics like Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Donkey Kong, PAC-MAN, and Kirby’s Adventure. It launches November 11, with the NES Classic Controller, sold separately for $9.99. Keep in mind, the controller can be connected to a Wii remote and can be used to play Virtual Console NES games on a Wii U or Wii system.

Release Date: 11/11/16 (Friday)
