Nintendo resurrects the NES with new Nintendo Classic Mini
The Nintendo Classic Mini, as it’s known, looks just like a shrunken NES. But instead of using those fiddly cartridges, it comes with 30 games built in. Hook it up to your TV with an HDMI cable and enjoy the glory days of Super Mario Bros., Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Donky Kong and a whole load more besides.

It’s due to go on sale on 11 November in the UK and US, with US pricing pegged at $60. I’ve asked Nintendo to confirm UK pricing and Australian availability, but in the meantime, that US price converts to £45 or AU$80.
