The Japanese gaming giant announced its intention to recreate the classic Nintendo Entertainment System for the modern era. The Nintendo Classic Mini.

The NCM appears to be small enough to be held one-handed and comes with a selection of 30 games built-in, though a glimpse at the front of the console shows what is presumably a cartridge slot for putting your original games to use.
Further info on the Nintendo website reveals that the NCM is fully HDMI capable and is powered via a single USB port. Both cables will ship with the product along with a single controller.
Nintendo has clearly been following some of the insanely popular emulator projects on Kickstarter and decided to go the whole hog with its own entry into the market. No emulator can compete with a high-fidelity recreation of the original hardware.
There are no details on whether the NCM will improve on the original console’s functionality, but presumably Nintendo will be following up with further news.
The full list of games you can get your mucky paws on are as follows:
Retro games party, here we come!
