Nintendo Announces the Mini NES

Nintendo has unveiled a new console, but it isn’t the NX. Instead, the Japanese company has revealed a redux of the hardware that launched its entry into home gaming. Behold, the Mini NES!

The Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System is a tiny USB-powered version of the original 1980s console – petite enough to fit in the palm of your hand – which comes with thirty inbuilt classic games and one replica NES controller, which is also compatible with the Wii and Wii U to play applicable Virtual Console games. Wii U Classic Controller or Wii Classic Controller Pro are reverse-compatible with the Mini NES, while the NES Classic Controller will go on sale separately.

The thirty free games included are:

  • Balloon Fight
  • Bubble Bobble
  • Castlevania
  • Castlevania 2: Simon’s Quest
  • Donkey Kong
  • Donkey Kong Jr.
  • Double Dragon 2: The Revenge

  • Ghosts ‘n Goblins
  • Gradius
  • Ice Climber
  • Kid Icarus
  • Kirby’s Adventure
  • Mario Bros.
  • Mega Man 2
  • Metroid

  • Super C
  • Super Mario Bros.
  • Super Mario Bros. 2
  • Super Mario Bros. 3
  • Tecmo Bowl
