    Nintendo is on a hot run of late, and after announcing a surprising piece of new hardware last week — the  NES Classic Edition — it dropped an amazing retro commercial on the world today complete with retro-futuristic grids, energetic rock music, lasers and a Nintendo Power-esque tagline: “Now you’re playing with power.”

    The system, set to debut in November for a retail price of $59.99, has 30 games built into the console and aims firmly at the demographic that grew up playing classic games like Mario, Zelda and Donkey Kong.

    While the commercial lacks any new information, the retro touch is a nice one and has me super amped to get my hands on one of these when they come out.
