Nintendo Unveils Mini-NES Just in Time for Holidays

written by Jason Marcano July 14, 2016

On November 11th of this year Nintendo will release an official mini version of its classic NES console.

Designed to fit in the palm of your hand the mini console will come housed with 30 games. Nintendo’s mini-NES also comes with a classic style controller. It will also be packaged with a HDMI cable (one can never have enough of those) and a power adapter.

I love mini versions of anything and this Mini-NES is just plain adorable. But if the cuteness isn’t enough to sway you maybe the list of official games will.

  • Balloon Fight
  • Bubble Bobble
  • Castlevania
  • Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest
  • Donkey Kong
  • Donkey Kong Jr.
  • Double Dragon II: The Revenge
  • Dr. Mario
  • Excitebike
  • Final Fantasy
  • Galaga
  • Ghosts’N Goblins
  • Gradius
  • Ice Climber
  • Kid Icarus
  • Kirby’s Adventure
  • Mario Bros.
  • Mega Man 2
  • Metroid
  • Ninja Gaiden
  • Pac-Man
  • Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream
  • StarTropics
  • Super C
  • Super Mario Bros.
  • Super Mario Bros. 2
  • Super Mario Bros. 3
  • Tecmo Bowl
  • The Legend of Zelda
  • Zelda II: The Adventure of Link

That list is full of so much awesome how can one possibly say no? Releasing November 11th, just in time for a Christmas gift for yourself kids at the reasonable price of $59.99.

Not only is this an official and legal way to play these games, but it’s a chance to introduce an entirely new generation to the system that made most of us gamers way back in 1988.

The only thing I could possibly want more is a SNES version of this console. Just imagine Link to the Past, Yoshi’s Island, Mario Kart, Star Fox all in one tiny place.¬†I need to stop before I start hyping myself up over an imaginary console. Here’s hoping that next holiday we get a SNES one.

Will any of you geeks be picking up this quaint console come November? The Mario trilogy and the two Zelda games, along with the classic controller make it well worth it for me.
