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.
The NES was the first console I ever owned. Somehow I had saved holiday and birthday money for over a year to get it (the idea may have been planted by a family member) at five years old, and although I don’t remember every detail of that process, I do recall walking into a Sears to actually get the thing, and subsequently taking it home and playingDuck Hunt.
Although I had played arcade games and Atari before (it’s what presumably gave me the idea), nothing really resonated with me until I playedMariofor the first time. At that point, I knew this was something I would enjoy for a lifetime.
That’s a pretty common story among older gamers, who are the target audience for the newly minted NES Classic Edition — a simple, yet effective delivery system for 30 retro games from both Nintendo and third parties alike.
