NES Classic Edition

If your vision of the future involved all the technology of the past but smaller, Nintendo is here to make those visions come true. They’re doing it with the NES Classic Edition, the crazily small version of the world’s most iconic home video game console.

We all know your old NES cartridges are slowly melting, so the fact that the NES Classic Edition comes with 30 classic NES games pre-loaded onto its hard drive (and that it doesn’t play old cartridges) should be seen as a plus rather than a negative. That’s especially true since those games include essential titles like Metroid, Super Mario Bros., and both Zelda games.

Here’s the full list of included games:

  • 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™

Each NES Classic Edition comes with a retro-style classic controller and an HDMI cable to relive those NES hits in glorious high-definition. It’s set to hit stores in time for Christmas this year, but you can get more information right now straight from Nintendo here.
