SDCC 2016: Nintendo — NES Classic Edition and Amiibo

SDCC 2016 Nintendo NES Classic EditionNintendo revealed its NES Classic Edition console at San Diego Comic-Con 2016. The minified NES features HDMI output for crisp display of its old-school, 8-bit graphics and is pre-loaded with 30 games. For those wondering, all four the Mario Bros and both Legend of Zelda Games are included, as is Metroid. The system was shown alongside the original NES system and the size difference is quite drastic. The mini-NES will not include a controller, but one will be available for purchase ($9.99) for those who no longer have their original NES controllers. The NES Classic is priced $59.99 and slated for a Nov. 11 release.

Besides the NES Classic Edition, Nintendo showed its upcoming Amiibo figures including Kirby, Super Mario Bros. and Splatton themed lines.

    This is a cool but those 30 pre- loaded games won’t sustain me lol I’m a Retron 5 kind of guy

    • I bet they’ll have an option to purchase more. It’s still an emulator and I’ve found that it never really acts like the real thing. That’s why I’ve got my original NES in working order with a pretty decent library of games. Wish I kept my SNES too, however.
