Old school gamers, rejoice: Nintendo is launching the Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System on November 11th.
It looks just like the iconic console of yesteryear, except it’s much smaller, includes an HDMI cable to convey the graphics in all their retro glory on your flatscreen, and it’s got thirty games built in.
Megahits like Donkey Kong, Pac-Man, and the original Super Mario Bros. trilogy, along with dozens of others to while away whatever free time you may have. (Tecmo Bowl, we’re looking in your direction.)
In addition to the petite console itself, the $59.99 console comes with one classic controller—which you can connect to a Wii Remote controller, to play Virtual Console NES games on a Wii U or Wii console.

With the constant arrival of new hardware for classic systems, it was only a matter of time before someone built the ultimate solution to enjoying Nintendo NES games three decades after its initial release. RetroUSB recently revealed on Facebook their upcoming AVS console, a spiritual revision of Nintendo’s 8-bit system with built in HDMI out and countless other features too.
Packed with both a Nintendo NES and Famicom cartridge slot, built in Game Genie support, four control pad ports, and of course the aforementioned HDMI output, the AVS is pretty much a love letter to the timeless 8-bit platform. Offering support for games from all regions and the Famicom Disk System too, the AVS aims to quash the low quality tag that ‘Famiclones’ are often branded with by becoming the ultimate clone system.
RetroUSB are hoping to release the AVS this summer, however, an exact date is yet to be known. The console is set to cost just $185 upon release, giving the other HDMI ready NES alternative the Analogue NT a run for its money. RetroUSB have also stated that a wireless bluetooth control will be made available for the AVS too, something which will also rival the Retro Receiver hardware.
