Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition – Nintendo Minute (Video)

Last week, Nintendo posted a new video that focused on their upcoming NES Classic Edition system. This new video was a Nintendo Minute! Kit and Krysta show off the system and a couple of the games. The video and my impressions of what they showed are below.


The NES Classic Edition system is coming on November 11. This new system, for those who don’t know, is a smtaller version of the original NES system. It does not use carts like the original system. Instead, 30 games are built into the system and no more can be added.

Take a look at the Nintendo Minute focused on the NES Classic Edition and then please stick around for my thoughts on what’s shown:

I knew the system was smaller then the original NES, but I was still shocked by how much smaller. The NES Classic literally fits in the palm of your hand!

Thankfully, the controllers are not smaller and they look pretty much like the original NES controllers.

I really like how the menu in the system is laid out and I love the new modern options like changing visual quality and being able to create restore points! I think the addition of four restore points is perfect. I wish that the Wii U and 3DS Virtual Console games had that…

As for the games themselves, they showed off Super C and Mario Bros in the video. Mario Bros is a pretty basic game. Its alright I guess. It is nice to have all the NES Mario games on one system though! And Super C is a very hard game. Restore points will be handy with this game.

I was hoping that this video would show off more of the games. I would have loved to have seen Final Fantasy and a couple of the other Marios (Super Mario Bros 3 especially). Oh well. We won’t have to wait too much longer for this system!

What did you think of this Nintendo Minute? Are you planning to get the NES Classic on November 11th?
