Nintendo turned back to clock and went back to its roots, as it made them a whole lot of money. The video game titan released their Mini NES Classic Edition, only for it to sell out right away. Amazon put the system on sale at 2:00 PM on November 11th, only for it to be sold out in minutes.
The system is a modern replica of the classic video game system, which was released back in 1983 with a simple controller and was carried by the Super Mario Bros. game. This modern version comes with all of your favorite old games, as Nintendo says “The classic NES is back in familiar yet new form as a mini replica of Nintendo’s original home console. Relive past glories, defeat the boss that you could never beat, or simply enjoy the classic titles of yesteryear anew.”
The listed price is only $60, which includes the system and one controller. A second controller will costs you $10 and it also does not include a USB wire. Nintendo has promised that there will be more systems will be available for the holiday season, saying “The Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition system is a hot item, and we are working hard to keep up with consumer demand. There will be a steady flow of additional systems through the holiday shopping season and into the new year.”
This system hits home for consumers across multiple generations. People who grew up in the 80s and 90s loving the original system will love to get their hands on this and play, while kids growing up now can also never get enough of video games. Nintendo rarely gets it wrong, so be sure to keep a look out on these systems on the shelves of stores and available online very soon.
