Nintendo announced it is re-re-releasing the NES Classic Edition on June 29. The system is a throw-back to 1985, when Nintendo first put out the NES and essentially changed the world of video games. In November 2016, Nintendo made the NES Classic, and it sold out within months. Now, to give gamers another shot at owning one, the system will be back on store shelves, and Nintendo said it is “expected to be available through the end of the year.”
The NES Classic Edition costs $ 60 and comes with one controller and 30 classic games, including Donkey Kong, Pac-Man, and Super Mario Bros. A Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) Classic addition will also be available, for $ 80. But nothing beats the original.
