Nintendo is re-launching the NES for $60 in a tiny adorable console

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.

Here’s what we know so far:

  • It will cost $60
  • Extra NES controllers will cost you $10
  • The controller can be attached to a Wii remote for use with the Virtual Console on the Wii or Wii U
  • It ships on November 11
  • It comes with an HDMI and USB cable (for power)
  • It’s tiny and cute and the best
  • Games come with ‘multiple suspend points,’ allowing you to save your progress and not throw your remote at your TV when you remember how much harder old-school games were
