Here’s a full list of those games in question:

  • 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

No cartridges are present on this new NES gaming system, however an HDMI port is here so plugging into your TV will be nice and simple. You also get multiple suspend points as a feature so entering a password every time you play a game again becomes a thing of the past. In addition, you also get a controller designed exactly like the old NES one which is configured to operate the same way as well. This controller can also connect to a Wii Remote so playing Virtual Console games on a Wii or Wii U can get even cooler.

November 11th, 2016 is when you’ll be able to pick up this legendary piece of hardware revised for 2016, while you’ll only have to pay $59.99 to get yourself one. And with this combination of pricing and functionality, I think I just found everyone’s Christmas present…
