Nintendo is about to release a new console, and it’s not the NX. Introducing: The Nintendo Classic Mini.
In a totally unexpected move, it’s basically the classic NES console in a tiny body and pre-loaded with 30 games.
Perhaps the company is just having a moment of nostalgia. Either way, I already love it.
