NES Classic Edition – childhood relived

1024 528 Jeremy Ko

The Nintendo NES Classic Edition is your childhood in a box.

 

The NES classic is a definite throwback for all the game lovers out there.  It’s a dream come true for those who live in nostalgia of the days they used to come home after school, quickly finish their homework, just to play a few hours of Super Mario Bros 3.  What kid didn’t want a Nintendo system back in the day?

The Nintendo NES Classic Edition is an exact miniature replica of the original system release in the US in 1985.  However, the design is just for cosmetics as the cartridge door doesn’t open and all the ports are different.  Instead, there’s a power socket which connects to a micro SD power adapter, and a HDMI output is implemented to connect to all your modern TVs.  Don’t worry though, the controllers are identical to the original.  Just plug in the system, push the power button, and it’s ready to play.
