Look. At. This. Little. Thing.
This right here is an instant buy for almost all the eighties kids. Nintendo might be taking a risk with their upcoming Switch console in 2017, but with the reissue of their classic console in pocket format they’ve struck gold.
It’s the Nintendo Entertainment System built for 2016
- It’s very small and portable
- It has an HDMI port
- It runs off of USB power
- Controllers connect through USB
- Extra controllers for your friends cost nothing
- It comes with 30(!) games built-in
Those 30 games that come with it?
|Double Dragon II: The Revenge[a]||1989[b]||Arc System Works[c]|
|Ghosts ‘n Goblins||1986[b]||Capcom|
|Mega Man 2||1989||Capcom|
|Ninja Gaiden||1988||Koei Tecmo|
|Super Mario Bros.||1985||Nintendo|
|Super Mario Bros. 2[d]||1988||Nintendo|
|Super Mario Bros. 3||1988||Nintendo|
|The Legend of Zelda||1986||Nintendo|
|Zelda II: The Adventure of Link||1987||Nintendo|
Sure, you’ll miss the nostalgia of blowing dust off of the cartridges to get your games working, but this is like a little time capsule carrying all those days you spend trying to beat these near-impossible games.
If I’d have to name one downside it’s the short cables on the controller. I don’t want to sit 1 inch away from my TV Nintendo!
