Welcome back to 80’s gaming. Nintendo has brought back the NES console, sort of. They re-released the NES today with 30 of their most popular titles pre-installed on this mini version of the original NES. It’s retails for only $60 and if you were fortunate enough to get on it early then prepare to have fun but for most they probably missed it because it’s been a frenzy. Fear not, you can rest assured Nintendo knows what they have here and we will get a restock to two or three. Check your favorite electronics retailer and you could get lucky. Keep your eyes peeled so you can get one when that happens, you don’t want to miss out on these great games and a hell of a collector’s item. Here a list of what you’re getting game wise:

Balloon Fight

Double Dragon II: The Revenge

This little gadget is so cool and for the gamer it’s a must have especially if you’re from the era, like me. If you have kids that have probably never seen a Nintendo game, get this and play it with them. They’ll love it, trust me. I’m excited that Nintendo is bringing the NES back out. The only way you could have played these games is via an emulator and they’re not always easy to configure and finding the games can be a chore. Kudos, Nintendo best $60 I’ve spent on a gadget this year.
