“We wanted to give fans of all ages the opportunity to revisit Nintendo’s original system and rediscover why they fell in love with Nintendo in the first place,” said Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime. “The Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition is ideal for anyone who remembers playing the NES, or who wants to pass on those nostalgic memories to the next generation of gamers.”

For players craving two-player action, a second NES Classic Controller will be available for $9.99. The NES Classic Controller can also be used to play Virtual Console NES games on a Wii U or Wii gaming system.

Unfortunately, the new throwback console doesn’t include a cartridge slot, so gameplay is limited to the 30 included games. Plus, the European version doesn’t include a power supply. A USB cable is included, but European users will need to supply their own USB power supply, the one that came with your smartphone or tablet should do nicely.
