While we were all on the lookout for slight glimpses into Nintendo’s new console, code named “NX”, the company managed to catch us by surprise with the announcement of mini “console” hitting stores this fall. Without a single leak or vague announcement to stay tuned, Nintendo announced the NES Classic Edition, a miniature Nintendo Entertainment System that comes loaded with 30 classic games. Much like those bootleg systems you see at flea markets or even sketchy mall kiosks, this Nintendo system is simple plug and play, emulating games straight to your TV. Since its announcement, there’s been a lot speculation, controversy, and excitement regarding this bite-sized retro gaming machine. So, I figured I’d give a quick analysis on my take of this the NES Classic Edition and highlight a few of the 30 games. So, without further ado, grab a seat and your 30 Anniversary Mario Amiibo because we’re about to get retro. Buckle up.
