Nintendo Classic Mini

Hey Nintendo, I'm coming home.

It's been quite a while since I've played on any Nintendo consoles, but - from November - I'll be playing this:

The picture above is of a special device that the company is bringing out later this year that contains thirty classic games that were on the original Nintendo Entertainment System that came out in the 1980s.

It's shaped like a mini version of the console and all games are preloaded. It hooks up to a television via a HDMI cable and is powered by USB.

I was reading about it and was intrigued, so had a look at the Nintendo website to see how much it cost. 

£49.99! Not bad. Not bad at all.

I went through the list of titles and thought to myself 'if it has Super Mario Brothers 3, I'll buy it.' Within seconds, I saw the game listed. It was an instant sale. 

I sent off an email to two friends of mine, one of which I knew from childhood who used to own an original NES, his response was 'Punch Out and Double Dragon II have got my juices flowing already!!' The other reply went like this: 'omg, I want one too!'

For those of you interested the games are:  
  • Balloon Fight
  • Bubble Bobble
  • Castlevania
  • Castlevania II
  • Donkey Kong
  • Donkey Kong Jr.
  • Double Dragon II: The Revenge
