On November 10 here in Australia you will be able to pick up a pocket-sized original NES, with 30 classic Nintendo games built into it. And we couldn't be happier.
While we whine about the The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
, Nintendo has quietly revealed it will be releasing a small, pocket-sized NES featuring a number of memorable games. Information we learnt from our pals over at Vooks.net
The little console comes with HDMI cable (good news), a USB cable and a single controller (there are two controller ports though). It'll set you back about $100 dollerydoos, and the games it comes loaded with are:
- Balloon Fight™
- BUBBLE BOBBLE
- Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest™
- Donkey Kong™
- Donkey Kong Jr. ™
- DOUBLE DRAGON II: THE REVENGE
- Dr. Mario™
- FINAL FANTASY®
- GHOSTS’N GOBLINS®
- Ice Climber™
- Kid Icarus™
- Kirby’s Adventure™
- Mario Bros. ™
- MEGA MAN® 2
- NINJA GAIDEN
- Punch-Out!! ™ Featuring Mr. Dream
- SUPER C™
- Super Mario Bros.™
- Super Mario Bros. ™ 2
- Super Mario Bros. ™ 3
- TECMO BOWL
- The Legend of Zelda™
- Zelda II: The Adventure of Link™
Obviously you can pretty much play any of these on Desktops through Roms or the like, but there's some very cool nostalgia value here, and I for one will definitely be jumping on board.
According to the article on Vooks' site, the controllers "will connect to Wii Remote accessory ports, which also allows players to use their existing Wii Classic Controllers with the 30 included games. These new NES controllers will also be compatible with Wii Remotes to be used with Wii and Wii U Virtual Console titles. Extra controllers will be sold separately for $19.95AU".
Is this something you could see yourself picking up?
