The NES Attack Is Back Jack With the NES Classic Edition

Nintendo announced earlier today a brand new console and no; it’s not the new Nintendo NX that we’ve been talking about for awhile. It’s the NES…Well the NES Classic Edition. Coming out November 11th. The NES Classic Edition will be a mini version of the original NES with an HDMI port for modern TVs and one NES Classic Controller.  The system will come with 30 games built into it with some classic games like The Legend Of Zelda, Mega Man 2, Castlevania and Super Mario Bros 3.

You can also buy a 2nd NEC classic controller for $9.99.  Also, there is support for the Wii Remote or Classic Controller Pro with the NES Classic Edition.  The NES Classic Edition will come with 1 HDMI cable, 1 NES Classic Controller and AC Adapter (For the US, not the UK) and will retail for $59.99 and will be available on November 11th this holiday season.

Have to say I’m pretty excited for this. The list of games are solid and the price point is right. We just have to wait until November to grab one. In the meantime let us know what you think of the system. What should they add to the game list?  Should they do this for the SNES as well?
