Ok, understandable this isn’t music news, but it’s probably one of the most important bits of info to hit late twenty-somethings (and older) in a fair while. Still riding high on the release of Pokemon Go on the App Store, Nintendo are continuing their roll by re-releasing their classic 1980s debut system, the NES.
Set to hit US stores in November, with a UK launch at the same time, the NES: Classic Edition will be smaller than its initial outing, though with still keeping its instantly-recognisable design in-tact. Additionally, the system will come inbuilt with 30 classic games, including the entire Super Mario Bros. series, plus Zelda, Donkey Kong and more.
Available to preorder right now on Amazon, the NES Classic will be priced at £49.99 and include one controller (alongside an HDMI cable). Additional controllers will cost £9.99. Here’s the full list of titles bundled in – more as we hear it:
Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest
Donkey Kong Jr.
Double Dragon II: The Revenge
Mega Man 2
Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream
Super Mario Bros.
Super Mario Bros. 2
Super Mario Bros. 3
The Legend of Zelda
Zelda II: The Adventure of Link
