Today we bring you news that will make everyone happy... Fans of classic games, geeks, hipsters, and ultimately, anyone who likes video games. Just over a month ago, on July 14, Nintendo announced its new product, the relaunch of the legendary NES game console, repackaged as a miniature version, now equipped with 30 games: Nintendo Classic Mini.
The old version: The NES
For those of you that don't know, the "NES" , also known as the, "Nintendo Entertainment System", was one of the first consoles to hit the market, launched by Nintendo in North America, Europe and Australia between 1985 and 1987. in Asia, including Japan (where it was first marketed in 1983), was called the Family Computer, or Famicom.
It is considered by many to be the most succesful game console of the time. It helped aid in the recovery of the crisis that had blighted the American video game industry, as well as establishing the basis for future consoles, such as the design of games or the controller layout.
The new version: Nintendo Classic Mini
The miniature version of the Nintendo Entertainment System, Nintendo Classic Mini, will be released later this year, on November 11. Its price is very cheap, roughly £50, and comes already equipped with 30 games. It can be connected directly to the TV through a HDMI connector, so you can enjoy all the games on a large screen size. The package includes a controller and you can connect an additional controller, purchased seperately.
The console and controller are "almost exact" replicas of the original models of thirty years ago. And the games are the same! It's the perfect gift for any gamer and the whole family can play! With the controller of the Nintendo Classic Mini, you can also play NES games on the NES Virtual Console on the Wii.
