Nintendo is releasing a Mini NES with 30 built-in games

Nintendo is bringing back their classic NES!  This time only a lot smaller!  The mini NES!


Nintendo announced they would be rereleasing their classic NES and calling the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition.  It looks just like the original NES, only a lot tinier, and it comes preloaded with 30 games built in. You can connect the mini NES to your TV via a HDMI cable, and it also includes a controller designed to work just like the iconic rectangular NES gamepad. (The new controller will also be able to connect to a Wii Remote, so that you can use it to play Virtual Console games on a Wii or Wii U.)
