Remember the original Nintendo? A mini version's coming out

Publish date:

Let the nostalgia begin. Nintendo announced on Thursday the release of a new, yet old, gaming console - the mini NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) classic edition.

Scheduled to hit stores on November 11, the rebooted system will come with 30 classic games preinstalled, such as Super Mario Bros, The Legend of Zelda and Final Fantasy, according to Engadget. TIME released the full list of games here.

The mini, as described by its name, is just a smaller version of the original NES released in 1983. Besides being tiny, it does have some updated technology like an HDMI port to make it compatible with modern models.

Nintendo, however, isn't the first company to tap into the mini model industry. A company named AtGames released a mini SEGA Genesis console which is available on Amazon, according to The Verge. That version also has preinstalled games but is without an HDMI port.

Even though it isn't an entirely new concept, fans old and new are anxiously anticipating its release.

The system will cost $59.99 and will include a classic controller. Additional controllers are available for $9.99, according to Tech Crunch.
