Watch this incredibly retro commercial for Nintendo's new mini NES

New, 20 comments

Last week Nintendo announced a surprise piece of hardware: the NES Classic Edition, a tiny version of the classic console with 30 games built right in. It's a device fueled primarily by nostalgia, and this new video shows that Nintendo isn't backing away from that idea at all, with a vibe that feels pulled right out of the '80s. It has everything: gaudy fonts, lots of pink and purple, retro-futuristic grids, and an aggressive voice saying "Now you're playing with power!" It doesn't provide much in the way of new information, but if the initial reveal wasn't enough to get you excited, this might just push you over the edge. The NES Classic Edition is due to launch on November 11th for $59.99.
