Nintendo Classic Mini

Just saw mention of this, the Nintendo Classic Mini

It includes a USB controller, HDMI, and you have to bring your own USB +5v power supply. It’ll come with 30 pack in games, but no mention of any additional games.

The only thing that stuck out to me is that Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!!,  is reverted back to the original Japanese Mr Dream.  Kind of lame, but I guess that is licensing for you.

There is more information at the Nintendo page, with a shipping date of November 11th, 2016 for the UK.

What is there to tell? I've loved UNIX like things since I was first exposed to QNX in highschool (we had the Unisys ICONS!), and spent the better time of my teenage years trying to get my own UNIX... I should have bought Coherent in retrospect.. Anyways latched onto Linux in 1992, and then got some old BSD admin books and have been hooked on the VAX BSD & other big/ancient things since...!

  1. Would be interesting if someone could modify the mini console for exchanging ROM content at least, some of the beloved classics like Gyruss are missing 🙁
    At least modern HDMI video is offered, but I fear only one super integrated chip is used, and almost nothing else.
    Also, even the power supply is missing, not much for your money.

    • Well we have a ways to go until November, so time will tell.

      In the meantime I do have a famicom, and a retrofreak, so I’m good in those regards.

  2. I would prefer save a bit more money and buy a MiST FPGA outright for this xmas season. It would give me not only a NES, but an AMIGA, C64, Spectrum, etc etc.
