One of the best selling consoles of all time, the Nintendo Entertainment System or NES, is making a comeback as the NES Classic Edition.
Following the incredibly successful launch of Pokémon Go, Nintendo have seen a growth in their stock market value in the past week. You don’t need to be a Jordon Belfort to see where the money is.
Re-inventing Pokémon was such a success, why not re-release the NES too as the NEW Classic Edition. Pre-loaded with 30 classics including some of our favourites like Super Mario, Zelda, Donkey Kong, Pac-Man along with loads more games to read chapter 4. , Nintendo are taking a step back from futuristic gaming which remains the focus of rivals PlayStation and Xbox. Instead, Nintendo are letting us relive our childhood.
You may remember blowing in cartridges being the pinnacle of technical support in the house, but the relaunch promises some more mod-cons for the NES. HDMI connections, the ability to connect Wii controllers and of course the pre-installed games. You’ll even be able to pick up a second “old school” controller for just €10.
While it looks unlikely that there will be further titles added, nor will there be any internet connectivity. But considering the console will cost about €60 it’s a must have under your telly to show the younger generations where their gaming roots are based.
