Hello, my gamer friends!
Did you know today people are lining up to stake their claim on the very last batch of Nintendo NES Classic consoles? If you are hoping to get one also, you might want to hurry up and just do it. These classic consoles will never be made again so this is literally your last chance!! While you may be able to score one pretty easily as of now, keep in mind, they won’t be around for long. These consoles are flying off the shelves at a rapid pace so… don’t get left behind… Get em’ while you can!
While it’s style has stayed classic to what we all remember as kids, it is quite a bit smaller…. Which makes sense considering everything we buy seems to be more compact these days.. except for phones.. sometimes I look around at people on their phones, and it sounds like they are holding a full-fledged tablet up to their ear.. lol. Don’t get me wrong there’s nothing wrong with that… Just cracks me up that phones are getting bigger and less easy to carry while all other technology is downsizing for more comfortable use.
The NES is just a miniature version of the original which debuted way back in 1985. Yes! 1985… can you believe it! It’s easy to use, just requiring you to plug it in and get ready to be entertained!
Your purchase will include:
- 30 pre-installed games… WooHoo!!
- Your AC adapter
- HDMI Cable
- One classic controller
- And of course your NES Classic Console
Luckily, the controller is full sized so, you won’t have to worry about holding a mini controller in your hands. If you happen to have any of your original controllers, they are still compatible with this new system, and even your Wii remote will work. How cool is that?
There is a two-player mode so you can share in the fun. As I mentioned before when you buy your console, you will only be purchasing one controller, so you will have to buy another one for two player mode. Luckily, it will only run you about $10.00. So not too shabby at all!
This time around it is much easier to save your games progress… while in game mode you can hit the reset button to return to the homepage.. here is where you can save. You can pick back up right where you left off. Phew!!
Display Modes Include:
- Pixel Perfection: Each pixel was designed to be perfect, so your gaming experience is presented exactly as intended.
- 4:3- This keeps the look original but with a horizontal stretch allowing more precise gameplay.
- CRT Filter: This gives you that classic old school feel, creating the appearance of an old TV… Scan lines and everything!
Here’s a little preview….
All our favorite games are back! Pre- programmed Classic Games include:
- Donkey Kong
- Balloon Fight
- Super Mario Brother 1&3 (Not sure what happened to Super Mario Bros. 3…but okay.)
- The Legend Of Zelda
- Mega Man 2
- Ghost’s N Goblins
- Star Tropics
- Super C
- Mario Bros Original
- Castlevania 2: Simon’s Request

- Donkey Kong Junior
- Dr. Mario
- Balloon Fight
- Punch-Out! Featuring Dr. Dream.. (Also one of my faves!!)
That’s a lot of games all in one little console! But, if your gonna get it, you will need all these games from the get go. It was smart of the to do this… It’s not like you can stop at your local gaming store and just pick one up. They had to give us pre-programmed games, I am just happy they gave us so many!
And here’s one minute of gameplay for each one…
If you are a collector, this is surely a must buy for you… No worries friends this console will only cost you in total… around $60.
After 4/24/17 this will not be sold in stores anymore. Unless you can find a store that hasn’t sold out just yet, but I doubt if you would have such luck with people waiting in lines for hours, not even leaving to eat or sleep. If you have yet to get yours, the only place you may find them is exclusively on eBay.
They are also being sold through Best Buy, Target, Walmart, Amazon, GameStop & Toy’s R Us, so if you are having trouble finding one, consider these places. Like I mentioned before, here pretty soon you only be able to find them on eBay, I’m sure. As people will be stocking up and making as much money off them as possible.
I hope this gave you a heads up about what to expect from your mini Nintendo. If you already have one, comment and let me know what your gaming experience has been like… Very interested to know!
Until then…thanks for stopping by Ky’s Korner! Let’s chat again soon!
