Earlier this month, Nintendo teased us that they are going to release the Mini-NES in the near future.

 

To the people who do not know, the Nintendo Mini-NES is a Nintendo Entertainment System console that will house 30 of the most popular games in it.

 

That means, though, that there will be no more additional games added to the game console other than the 30 that is going to be built-in.

 

The Nintendo Mini-NES truly lives up to its moniker; it actually is a lot smaller than the original Nintendo Entertainment System.

 

With that being said, there are a few vast improvements. The controller can actually be used for the Nintendo Wii U as well. The only thing you need to keep in mind with regards to the controller is that you will only get one free controller.

 

That being said, if you want to have an additional controller, you just have to dish out another $10 for it (This is a good price actually since the controller can be used on the Nintendo Wii U).

 

I also want to point out the Mini-NES’ games you can expect. There will be two Legend of Zelda games in it and it will also have the three Super Mario titles baked into the system as well.

 

Other Nintendo games would include the Donkey Kong games, Bomberman, and a slew of other popular Nintendo Entertainment System titles.

 

Well, the sad thing is that Nintendo has no plans of ever increasing the 30-game lineup. What you see is what you get, I suppose.

 

It is sad considering that the vast majority of game consoles nowadays already sport an internet connection and I think it would be wise for them to include an internet port for the Mini-NES.

 

But I think that the reason behind the Mini-NES is for people to have a nostalgic gaming experience.

 

The Mini-NES was released more than 20 years ago and despite its dated nature, a lot of people are still playing some of its games.

 

Now, they do not have to play NES games via an emulator as they can now enjoy the top 30 games of the platform on the Nintendo Mini-NES.

 

Nintendo fans will not have to wait long as the Nintendo Mini-NES will be released in November this year.

 

Also, do take note that the Nintendo Mini-NES will be sold for $60. Are you going to dish out $60 for a date game console?

 

For me, yes, I definitely will. That is because the Nintendo Mini-NES houses some of my most favorite games back in the Nintendo Entertainment System’s prime.

 

Furthermore, I treat this item as a collector’s item since, well, it resembles the original NES game console.

 

If you want to make sure to get your hands on the Nintendo Mini-NES, head on over to the Nintendo website and pre-order this game console.

 

Again, the Nintendo Mini-NES costs $60 and it comes with one free controller (add $10 for an additional one), and it will have 30 free games built-in to the system.
