The lights are on
While we wait for news on Nintendo's newest home console, the NX, the company has at least announced hardware news of another variety. Nintendo is releasing a mini Classic Edition NES that comes built-in with 30 games for $59.99.
The NES Classic Edition comes out on November 11, and the box also includes an HDMI cable, AC adapter, and classic NES controller. You can get a second controller (either another classic controller or the classic controller pro) sold separately for $9.99. The classic controller can also be connected to a Wii remote controller in order to play Virtual Console NES titles on a Wii or Wii U.
As for the games (listed below), Nintendo says that the old password system has been ditched, and each title has "multiple suspend points."
Our TakeWhile you've had the chance to purchase these games many times over and probably already have, this is a sweet package not only for its looks, portability, and value, but the fact that you can play these classics with the controller they were meant to be played with.
