The '80s are back and Nintendo is totally embracing them with the Nov. 11 launch of the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition system, which includes 30 classic NES games such as Super Mario Bros., Metroid, Donkey Kong, The Legend of Zelda, Kirby’s Adventure and PAC-MAN.
On the night of Nov. 10, fans who visit the Nintendo NY store in Rockefeller Plaza will have a blast in the past with an '80s-themed launch event. On launch weekend (Nov. 11-13), Nintendo is also bringing back its nostalgic Power Line for three days.
On Nov. 10 and Nov. 11, its social media channels will go completely retro to a time when "social media" involved trading passwords and game tips on the school bus.
With 30 NES games, a replica of the original NES controller, three display modes (including one that makes your fancy hi-def display look like a retro tube TV) and Suspend Points for easy on-the-spot saving, the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition is a great value at a suggested retail price of only $59.99.
