The NES Classic Edition may be a palm-sized replica of the original, but this version comes pre-loaded with 30 classic games, all for $59.99, when released in November. The system features HDMI display output and a new replica controller, which can also connect to the Wii remote for use with Virtual Console games. Unlike the North American / European models, the controllers for the Japanese version are hardwired into the console just like the original Nintendo Famicom; because of this, the controllers and connecting cables are also mini and shortened respectively.

“In a press release (and new trailer) this morning, Nintendo said that the sleek new system will let you maintain up to four different suspend points for each game. You’ll also be able to see the original NES manuals by scanning QR codes that appear on your screen. And each game will be playable in three display modes: CRT filter (which adds a scan-line effect), 4:3 (which maintains the original aspect ratio), and Pixel Perfect (which turns every pixel into a perfect square),” reports Kotaku.
