Nintendo Classic Edition Overview

Experience a retro blast from the past by owning the system that started it all, the NES Classic Edition from Nintendo.

The NES Classic Edition may be the miniaturized version of the original NES from 1985, but it has also been modernized so you can connect it to your HDTV via HDMI. There's no need to worry about having a retro TV to use. The NES Classic Edition also supports the Nintendo Wii Classic Controller and Classic Controller Pro.

The included NES Classic Controller maintains the old-school size and feel, but uses a different connector. The NES Classic Controller can be used with NES Virtual Console games on your Wii or Wii U by connecting it to a Wii Remote controller.

Collect pellets while avoiding the ghosts in Pac-Man. Stomp Goombas and save Princess Toadstool from Bowser in Super Mario Bros. Use your sword and shield to rescue Princess Zelda from Ganon in The Legend of Zelda. There are 30 pre-installed classic NES games to choose from, which also means you don't have to change cartridges (or blow on them) when you want to switch games.

All the games included performed as remembered. Most are fun to play and predictably addictive! Gaming console is reminiscent of the original. but smaller and no cartridges to insert. Supplied HDMI cable is way too short and had to obtain a longer cable. Hand controller is also a little small for my hands, but then my hands could be larger than when I played the original years back. Overall it is a good fun experience.

Excellent quality, fast shipping. Its just like the original except you don't have to blow in the cartridge to get it to play ;) So easy, just plug n play with HDMI. So many great memories! My kids are like "how come your so good at these games" ha ha ha if they only knew. I tell them this is the real thing that started it all. So glad we got one.

Awesome console. All the early hits. Nice small size, one hdmi connection, plug it in and play!! 4 stars because the cable for the controller is ridiculously short. You NEED to purchase an extension cable.

I used to kill time in college when not studying hanging out at the campus snack bar. In the corner they had a Donkey Kong console. I’m not a gamer, I just thought it would be cool to play again. Since this console was small and had the game built in, and it was on sale, I pulled the trigger and got it. I bouts wireless controller online to go with it. Hooked it up to my big screen which was pretty easy I have to say and voila, Reliving my youth. Ok so not exacythe same game with sounds and such, but close enouyto kill time and get a few laughs. I figure when the nieces come for a visit or friends children It’ll get more use. Overall it was worth the money, but I recommend adding the wireless controller.

Love playing our NIntendo classic. So cool! Brings back so many memories from childhood. Nice that all the games are built in, dont need individual cartridges. Was disappointed it only came with one controller though, and the cord of the included controller is not long enough.

Will I be able to use my wireless controller I bought with my mini NES Super Nintendo?
