Lately there have been projects with the Raspberry Pi on upgrading the old school Game Boys, some have use it to recreate computers or other classic gaming systems, which makes me want to make one, and even though the steps are not that hard, it requires some time to be invested and make sure it works the proper way. Well there is no need to do this no more, actually you can still do it but if you prefer to have a home system that looks classis and neat, well Nintendo has the answer for you.
Nintendo has announced that they will be bringing back the NES. This NES is smaller than the original, from the image I saw on the Verge article it seems it could fit on our hand, but is not a portable device, although I’m sure you can make a display adapter that connects to it with a Raspberry Pi. The new NES or what they call NES Classis Edition will contain 30 games only, yes that’s the bad part and there is no way to add R.O.Ms, so you will be stuck with the 30 games that are pre-loaded which are not that bad.
Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest
Donkey Kong Jr.
Double Dragon II: The Revenge
Mega Man 2
Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream
Super Mario Bros.
Super Mario Bros. 2
Super Mario Bros. 3
The Legend of Zelda
Zelda II: The Adventure of Link
The game will come with HDMI connections and a new controller that can be connected as well to the Wii Remote to allow you to play the Virtual Console games. The NESS Classic Edition will be out November 11th and it will cost $59.99, not a bad price considering that most Raspberry Pi mods after all components may cost you about the same. So for all NES lovers here is what you been waiting for, have fun and enjoy them NES games.
