Nintendo is releasing a new console this November, and it’s not the NX. It’s not exactly new either. The company is launching the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition on November 11th for $59.99 USD that will plug right into an HDMI port. The system will include over 30 games, two of which are The Legend of Zelda, and Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. If you would like to play in two-player mode for some of the games listed below, don’t worry, as you can purchase an “NES Classic Controller” for $9.99 USD.The NES Classic Controller can also be connected to a Wii Remote to enjoy Virtual Console NES games on the Wii U or Wii, if you would like to make the retro experience mean a bit more.

“We wanted to give fans of all ages the opportunity to revisit Nintendo’s original system and rediscover why they fell in love with Nintendo in the first place. The Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition is ideal for anyone who remembers playing the NES, or who wants to pass on those nostalgic memories to the next generation of gamers.” — Reggie Fils-Aimé, Nintendo of America President

Nintendo also knows how hard some of the games on the list can be. In today’s fast-paced world, you might not be able to sit down and finish a game in one sitting. If you need to take a break from playing NINJA GAIDEN for a while, you can make use of something called “suspend points” to start where you left off at a later date. No passwords are needed here. Or, you could totally go old-school, and just let the TV overheat while you go to your job.

Here is the complete list of games that will be playable:

  • Balloon Fight
  • Castlevania
  • Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest
  • Donkey Kong
  • Donkey Kong Jr.
  • Dr. Mario
  • Excitebike
  • Galaga
  • Ice Climber
  • Kid Icarus
  • Kirby’s Adventure
  • Mario Bros.
  • MEGA MAN® 2
  • Metroid
  • Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream
  • StarTropics
  • Super Mario Bros.
  • Super Mario Bros. 2
  • Super Mario Bros. 3
  • The Legend of Zelda
  • Zelda II: The Adventure of Link
