(Newser) – Nintendo, drunk on the nostalgic success of Pokemon Go this week, is now setting its sights on 80s kids. The video-game company announced the NES Classic Edition on Thursday, Mashable reports. The mini version of the original Nintendo Entertainment System will be released this November and come preloaded with 30 classic games, including Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Donkey Kong, and Tecmo Bowl. According to the Verge, the NES Classic Edition will also come with an HDMI cable for use with today's fancy TVs and a new version of the classic controller, which will be compatible with the Wii and Wii U. The whole package is only $59.99, so maybe buy two for when you smash the first one after failing to get past the second level of Ninja Gaiden for the hundredth time. (Read more Nintendo stories.)
