Nintendo Continue Their Nostalgia Rampage By Re-Releasing The NES
It's 1985's must-have gadget!
It's hard to blame Nintendo for getting a little cocky.
They currently have the entire Western hemisphere under a nostalgia-induced spell with 'Pokemon GO', and their share prices are up 50 percent since the game's release.
But, Nintendo, mate, come on: rereleasing the NES—a console from 1985—and charging £45 for the privilege? It might be a little too early for that particular victory lap.
The Japanese gaming giants are set to reintroduce the much-loved Nintendo Entertainment System (which is now called the 'NES Classic Edition') in November.
There'll be a few changes: it'll be palm-sized, have 30 in-built classics to play, and be connectable through HDMI, so that you can finally gaze at all 8-bits in crystal-clear definition.
Unfortunately, you won't be able to play your old cartridges on it (because they're now bigger than the machine itself). Here's a complete list of the games that'll come along with it:
- Balloon Fight
- Bubble Bobble
- Castlevania II: Simon's Quest
- Donkey Kong
- Donkey Kong Jr.
- Double Dragon II: The Revenge
- Dr. Mario
- Final Fantasy
- Ghosts'N Goblins
- Ice Climber
- Kid Icarus
- Kirby's Adventure
- Mario Bros.
- Mega Man 2
- Ninja Gaiden
- Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream
- Super C
- Super Mario Bros.
- Super Mario Bros. 2
- Super Mario Bros. 3
- Tecmo Bowl
- The Legend of Zelda
- Zelda II: The Adventure of Link
