Aside from being a great exercise in nostalgia, these are the main things that caught everyone’s attention when it came to the Mini NES Classic Edition. The first thing that draws attention to see is that it is aesthetically identical to the original NES in 1985, with two distinct differences.

The crosshead to move up, down or sideways, the Select, Start, and B and A buttons on the back. In fact, it is very similar to the original command.
