Amazon released the Mini NES Classic Edition for pre-order a few days ago and it literally sold out within minutes. If you visit the Amazon site, you will see the “Currently Unavailable” heading on the console’s home page. The NES will launch on November 11 this year and has the following specs:
NES Classic Edition has the original look and feel; small and sleek
Up to 30 pre-installed games like Super Mario Bros., Donkey Kong, PAC-MAN and more
Includes a standard HDMI cable
Comes with one old-school, grey-colored NES Classic Controller and an AC adapter
Also compatible with Classic Controller and Classic Controller Pro
Additional NES Classic Controllers will be sold separately
Console will feature classic CRT monitor look
The upcoming console will only have HDMI and two controller ports. WiFi, USB, and SD will not be applicable on the system. In an interview with La Terrasse ÉNERGIE, Nintendo of Canada communications manager Julie Gagnon confirmed that the new console will “include a pixel perfect option that displays each pixel as a square, but also a mode simulating the retro look from a CRT television and an option to display the games in a 4:3 aspect ratio.” (via IGN)
