Nintendo's retro ad for new mini NES will take you back in '80s

News Desk July 22, 2016
The new classic edition will come with 30 pre-installed games.

Last week when Nintendo had announced the launch of a tiny version of original Nintendo Entertainment System console, NES Classic Edition, it gave people a major dose of nostalgia.

Nintendo released a video of NES Classic Edition and it seems straight out of the ‘80s, fuelling nostalgic feeling among Nintendo fans.

Original Nintendo is making a comeback

The video starts with the screen opening to Super Mario Bros. It has everything from gaudy fonts to signature pink and purple colours and retro-futuristic grids of ‘80s. The video ends with an aggressive voice saying "Now you're playing with power!"

It is scheduled to go on sale from November 11 this year for $59.99. You can buy an additional NES Classic Controller for $9.99.

Pictures obtained by The Verge shows how small the new NES Classic console is compared to original Nintendo.

The new classic edition will come with 30 pre-installed games, including classics such as Super Mario Bros 1, 2 and 3, Donkey Kong, Bubble Bobble, The Legend of Zelda and more.



The new console, which is described as a “mini replica”, seems to be launching only in the US for now. It is also compatible with our new-age TV sets as NES classic edition plugs-in with HDMI cable.
