Nintendo Scores Another Hit With NES Mini

If you're a little older (not a young 20-something), you probably find yourself shaking your head as the rest of the country - and gamers across the globe - walk around looking lost while staring at their phone screens, totally immersed in playing Pokémon Go.

Based on the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) that was first released in Europe in 1986, the Classic Mini is a shrunken down version of the original console that can be connected to modern TVs that support HD.

The new system will feature the original controllers, an HDMI connection and classic games like "Super Mario Bros.", "The Legend of Zelda" and "Excitebike", just to name a few.

That means you can take on Bowser and King Koopa again.

This latest news is another example of Nintendo getting innovative monetizing its old content library.

"We wanted to give fans of all ages the opportunity to revisit Nintendo's original system and rediscover why they fell in love with Nintendo in the first place", Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America President and COO, said in a statement. The NES Classic Edition will come with 30 of the console's greatest games and it fits right in the palm of your hand for $60 this November.

The list includes everything from the iconic Super Mario series to favorites like Metroid, The Legend of Zelda, and Mega Man 2.

The video, titled "Mini NES Classic Edition 1980s Commercial - Nintendo Promotional VHS Found", plays on the poor resolution from yesteryear and showcases all the 8-bit glory. Additional controllers will be available for purchase for $9.99. The 30 games that were revealed were chosen to represent popular and recognizable NES games that should appeal to a wide range of players. Are you disappointed that Nintendo isn't planning to add additional NES games over time?
