If you’re feeling nostalgic for the games of your childhood, but maybe you no longer have your NES, or it’s a hassle to blow the dust off it every time you feel like playing Super Mario Bros, we have fantastic news for you.
This morning, Nintendo of America posted on their official Twitter that they will be releasing a mini version of their classic NES console, complete with 30 pre-loaded games.
The system comes with the aforementioned games, an HDMI cable, an AC power adaptor, and a replica version of the original NES controller.
If you’re interested in playing with a second person, Nintendo has confirmed that you will have the option to purchase a second controller for $9.99. It will also work with a Classic Controller if you have one of those. As it is meant to be a retro gaming experience, there will be no online connectivity; however, unlike the original NES, you will be able to save your progress in-game.
Sure, some of these games are available via the Virtual Console; not all, though, and when you consider the cost for each of them, this is actually a fantastic value at only $60. Not to mention that with this, you get that nostalgic feel of holding a classic NES controller in your hands.
Here’s the complete list of games:
Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest™
Donkey Kong Jr. ™
DOUBLE DRAGON II: THE REVENGE
Mario Bros. ™
MEGA MAN® 2
Punch-Out!! ™ Featuring Mr. Dream
Super Mario Bros.™
Super Mario Bros. ™ 2
Super Mario Bros. ™ 3
The Legend of Zelda™

The system will release on November 11th in North America and the UK for $59.99. Check back here for information on how to preorder.
