Last week, Nintendo surprised the gaming world by announcing the NES Classic Edition, a mini replica of the 8-bit NES with 30 of the system’s greatest games pre-installed. Nintendo has avoided these kind of all-in-one machines before, but the response from fans was huge. Turns out people really want an easy, inexpensive way to play classic 8-bit games on their HD TVs.
Well, now Nintendo is doubling down on the nostalgia with a new ad that makes heavy reference to Nintendo’s ’80s heyday. The neon, the rocking soundtrack – it’s all very familiar. Nintendo has even revived their classic “Now you’re playing with power!” slogan.
Here’s a reminder of all the games available on the NES Classic. It’s missing a few important gems, but it’s still a pretty solid collection.
