Nintendo has just made a surprise announcement that it’s bringing the Nintendo Entertainment System back to stores in the form of the NES Classic Edition. This brand new old console comes with 30 original NES games built in and plugs directly into a HD television with the included HDMI cable, and it also allows for two player gaming. An additional NES controller can be bought separately, though the console can be played using the Classic Controller or Classic Controller Pro. The NES controller can also be plugged into a Wii Remote and used to play NES games on either the Wii or Wii U’s Virtual Console.

All of the following games are built in to the NES Classic Edition and have been updated with optional “suspend points” for breaks between gaming:

  • 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

The Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition will launch on November 11th, 2016 for $59.99. If you want a second controller for 2-player modes, you will be able to purchase one for $9.99.

While this is a completely random release by Nintendo, how do you feel about it? The retro vibes are certainly there, and it’ll be crazy to see NES consoles and controllers back in stores again more than 30 years after the original launch.
