Nintendo announces that it is bringing back one of its classic consoles
This is great news for gaming fans, and also those people who just really like buying retro stuff.
Nintendo has announced plans to revive the NES Classic this summer. The console, which is a mini-version of the original NES from 1983, will go on sale in the US from June 29 of 2018.
The NES Classic Edition first hit shelves for a limited time between 2016 and 2017, at which time it saw solid sales, and Nintendo had always hinted that the console would make a return.
The console was compatible with many of the classic games that were playable on the original NES, including Mario Bros, Mario Bros 2, Dr. Mario, Donkey Kong, The Legend of Zelda, Ninja Gaidan and Pac-Man (just writing that list made us desperately want one).
While there have been no revelations as to whether or not the console will go on sale outside of the US, the last time around the console was sold in Asia, Australia and Europe — so we can certainly keep our fingers crossed.
There's other good news for retro game-heads, as Nintendo has announced that there are more plans to bring back their old school range: “Fans have shown their unbridled enthusiasm for these Classic Edition systems, so Nintendo is working to put many more of them on store shelves."
Who else is hoping for a Gameboy Colour re-release?
