Nintendo has announced that they’ll be releasing a mini NES this November, retailing at $60 dollars and pre-loaded with 30 classic titles. It will come with a NES controller with a Wii style plug,  no USB ports so you won’t be able to pop in retro USB controllers (although additional controller will retail at $9.99, which is about as much as a off-brand controller would cost so, whatever.) It also has an HDMI out port, allowing you to play games on your new fangled non-cathode ray tube television. At launch, the system will play the following games:

  • Balloon Fight
  • Bubble Bobble
  • Castlevania
  • Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest
  • Donkey Kong
  • Donkey Kong Jr.
  • Double Dragon II: The Revenge
  • Dr. Mario
  • Excitebike
  • Final Fantasy
  • Galaga
  • Ghosts ‘n Goblins
  • Gradius
  • Ice Climber
  • Kid Icarus
  • Kirby’s Adventure
  • Mario Bros.
  • Mega Man 2
  • Metroid
  • Ninja Gaiden
  • Pac-Man
  • Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream
  • StarTropics
  • Super C
  • Super Mario Bros.
  • Super Mario Bros. 2
  • Super Mario Bros. 3
  • Tecmo Bowl
  • The Legend of Zelda
  • Zelda II: The Adventure of Link

There does not appear to be a way to update the system, as it doesn’t accept either flash memory or cartridges.
