Nintendo just loves to play with our nostalgic feelings. After Pokémon Go (which is a HUGE success) they announced a mini version of their first popular home console: the Nintendo Entertainment System.
The system will be released with 30 pre installed games such as Super Mario Bros 3 and Metroid. The list looks pretty good and features something for everyone to enjoy (I’ll include the full list below). An advantage that this NES mini has over the original NES is that this has a HDMI output; older consoles sometimes look pretty bad on newer televisions but because this has a HDMI output that won’t be the case.
The NES Mini will be powered via USB but it will only give you the USB cable, not the charging plug (but mostly everyone has one for their phone so that isn’t a big deal). Lastly the console comes with a classic NES controller and the cool thing is that it can also be used on the Wii and WiiU (to play NES games). All those things sound pretty good but a system like this only succeeds if the price is right and that seems to be the case. The NES mini will be sold for 60 Dollars and an additional controller will set you back 10 dollars. A lot of people will be interested in this system for that price and I’ll bet you that they will sell out on the release (the 10th of november). I will definitely buy one but how about you? Are you interested in such a system? Let me know on the comments!
