Nintendo is creating a new device that plugs into your HDMI display and allows you to play 30 classic NES games. Here’s the full list of games that are included:
Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest™
Donkey Kong Jr. ™
DOUBLE DRAGON II: THE REVENGE
Mario Bros. ™
MEGA MAN® 2
Punch-Out!! ™ Featuring Mr. Dream
Super Mario Bros.™
Super Mario Bros. ™ 2
Super Mario Bros. ™ 3
The Legend of Zelda™
Zelda II: The Adventure of Link™
These games are stored onboard the device. You will not be able to play classic NES cartridges with it. The NES Classic Edition will retail for $59.99.
This seems like a great move by Nintendo to start to take advantage of their aging NES generation who may now want to introduce their kids to the retro games they used to play. This is a reasonably priced and legal way to play older NES games. I expect this to be a big seller during the 2016 holiday shopping season.
