VIDEO: What you'll find on the re-released Nintendo NES
REDMOND, Wash. (AP) — If you have fond memories of battling King Koopa or tossing barrels as Donkey Kong, you can relive them this fall.
Nintendo is leaping into the nostalgia market by bringing back the classic Nintendo Entertainment System.
“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,” Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime said in a statement. “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.”
The NES Classic edition comes complete with 30 built-in games, including all three "Super Mario Bros.," ''Donkey Kong," ''The Legend of Zelda," and "Punch-Out."
Nintendo says it's bringing back the wildly popular system that launched in the 1980s so those who grew up with it can pass gaming memories onto the next generation.
The device looks almost exactly like the original NES, but smaller. It will be able to be hooked up directly to high-definition TVs.
The system goes on sale on Nov. 11. Redmond, Washington-based Nintendo of America says it will retail for $59.99.
