A must-have for every gaming fan, a nostalgic one or a newbie!
A blast from the past: the original NES is coming back! The new NES Classic Edition system is a miniaturized version of the groundbreaking NES, which was originally released back in 1985, when it took the world by storm. It is almost identical to Nintendo's original console, however smaller and capable of connecting directly with your high-definition TV via HDMI cable (included in the bundle). Each bundle will include the unit with the games, an AC adapter, an HDMI cable and a NES Classic Controller. If you need a second controller, you will be able to get for just $9.99.
According to Nintendo's press release, the NES Classic Controllers can be connected to Wii remote controllers, so you'll also able to play Virtual Console NES games on the Wii U or Wii system.
Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime stated: "We wanted to give fans of all ages the opportunity to revisit Nintendo's original system and rediscover why they fell in love with Nintendo in the first place. The Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition is ideal for anyone who remembers playing the NES, or who wants to pass on those nostalgic memories to the next generation of gamers."
