This is the $60 'Nintendo Classic Mini Edition', a miniature Nintendo with 30 games installed that connects to your television via HDMI cable. It drops November 11th (just in time for Christmas lists) and comes with a single controller (that's also Wii and Wii U compatible when plugged into a Wiimote) although you can buy another for $10. You can buy two more for $20 but there won't be a place to plug in the third so that person will just have to PRETEND they're playing Nintendo like me and my brother used to make my little sister do. The games included on the system:
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
Admittedly, that's a pretty solid game lineup. I could see getting a lot of playtime out of this system. Unfortunately, I don't have a television that accepts HDMI cables. My TV is kind of oldschool. "That's a chalkboard." YEP. I have to draw my own Saturday morning cartoons. Can you tell that's a Pokemon?
Keep going for a shot of the packaging if you have a packaging fetish. Oohlala, boxes.
Thanks to Gregory, who refuses to play any Nintendo games that blowing on the cartridges isn't part of the experience. Ooooh, a purist.
