Nintendo’s NES Classic Edition Launch’s on November 11th
We are just 23 days away from the launch of Nintendo’s NES classic edition. Console which was announced earlier this year it’s a smaller version of the original NES console with 30 classic NES games included on the system’s hard drive. Expected retail price is $59.99 and includes the console 30 games and one replica of the original NES controller. The games have been upgraded with crisper graphics in the console runs on an HDMI cable and the system has been scaled down to the point it can fit in the palm of your hand.
The system allows for Co-Op play but you do have to purchase another controller separately. The system comes with 30 Games installed which include Super Mario Brothers, Super Mario Brothers 3, The Legend of Zelda, Donkey Kong, Mega-Man 2, PAC-Man, Final Fantasy, Metroid, Kirby’s Adventure, Castlevania, Ninja Gaiden , Super Mario Brothers 2, dr. Mario, punch out featuring mr. Dream, balloon fight, Donkey Kong Jr., Zelda 2, excite bike, ice climber, Kid Icarus, Double Dragon 2, bubble Bobble, Tecmo Bowl, Castlevania 2, Mario Brothers, Super C, Galaga, star tropics, Ghosts n Goblins and Gradius.
Will the NES classic edition definitely have Nostalgia going for it is unclear if this can be anything more than a one-off buy. The system definitely has a lot of great titles at launch and there’s no denying that a lot of these are phenomenal games the problem is is whether or not in tennis going to continue to support the console after its initial launch. Is there going to be anything added on to it are they going to be more games more features where’s the console going to be locked in as it is and just treat it as a one time buy. It’s hard to see Nintendo not launching something like this and not continuing to build on it but at the same time we do have the Nintendo NX just around the corner next year so this may be what they’re trying to help them in Holiday Market and at $59 it’s not a bad gift even if it is just a one-off but I hope to see if this is successful Nintendo go back with other consoles like the N64.
I’d love to be playing Golden Eye in HD quality or find the original Smash Brothers Memorial party. But this all could be a way of Nintendo testing the waters for interest in their classic IP’s. At any rate it’s nice to see a gaming company try something different. Even if it is just a classic collection of their games. As of right now you can get the system from you can get Nintendo’s NES Classic at best buy target and Amazon on November 11th for $59.99.
