If you grew up in the eighties the NES – Nintendo Entertainment System – will probably make you feel a little nostalgic. The game console introduced millions of people around the world to Mario and other creatures in the Nintendo universe.

And now it is back. Nintendo is launching a ‘NES Classic Edition’ in Europe and the US. The small game console has been slightly modernized with HDMI (for the TV) and USB (for power). Games now longer come on cartridges but are instead stored on a chip inside.

It offers 30 classic games, including several titles in the Mario, Zelda and Donkey Kong franchises. It also features games such as Mega Man 2, Pac-Man, and Final Fantasy. It is not possible to install additional games.

More units from Nintendo are incoming but if you want one for Christmas it looks like you should act soon.
