Reliving the Classics with Nintendo Classic Mini

The all new Nintendo Classic Mini is a modern rendition of the popular Nintendo Entertainment System of the 1980’s.  The said system was recently announced to the public by the company that brought us the all-time favorites such as the Super Mario Bros, The Legend of Zelda as well as Pac Man, Duck Hunt and Gradius.  It is set to be released on November 11, 2016 and will contain a total of 30 titles including those mentioned above.  The said system will let you relieve the classics of your childhood and furthermore share it to the young ones in your family.

Classic Mini BoxThe Box

It will come with a palm-sized console similar in look to the old Nintendo Entertainment System but is a lot smaller and light weight.  It is made up of aluminum alloy which makes it lighter and smaller.  It also comes with an HDMI port so that you can use it on your television and enjoy the games in widescreen like never before.  Additionally, a single NES Classic Gamepad is also included in the set as well as an AC adapter to power the unit.  Seeing the portability and the game contents included, this will be of so much more value for every penny spent for the purchase.

The Price

Speaking of the price, the Nintendo Classic Mini will be on the Australian market for a hefty price of Au$100.  It will also be sold in other countries such as the United States and the United Kingdom to name a few.  Pricing for the US will be set at USD60 while that of the UK will be £50 respectively.  Taking into account all the titles included in the set, you get more for the buck spent on this systems compared to others in the market today.

The Down Side

Nintendo never hinted that additional titles can be added or downloaded later on.  It is indicative that the 30 games in the box will all be set and cannot be modified.  Remember the 30 in 1 cartridges or the 60 in 1 cartridges? It will be similar to that only that there will be no cartridges involved.  Additionally, you need to purchase an additional controller if you want to enjoy it with your friends or family.  The separate controller are sold at Au$20 for Australia, Usd 10 for the United States and £8 for the United Kingdom.  Another matter that needs to be considered is that the console is oversubscribed at EBGames Australia for its pre-order scheme just as we write this.
