Thirty-three years after the original Nintendo Entertainment System was launched in the market, the modern miniature of this popular game console comes up with 30 games in compilation. Currently, after a launch late last year, NEC Classic Edition is gaining pitched sales from nostalgic users.

Nintendo has recently dispelled loose talks that it is encountering a lack of supply of NES Classic Edition to meet the nostalgic markets in the U.S. and EU. With the robust sales of the NES miniature, the pioneer gaming company hit anew a pot of gold and it is hurrying up things in the production side.

The NES Classic Edition has 30 pre-installed games such as Super Mario Bros. & Super Mario Bros. 3, Donkey Kong, Balloon Fight, The Legend of Zelda, Dr. Mario, Pac-Man, TECMO BOWL and others. Some of the games are from third party developers.

NES Classic Edition comes with a full-sized original controller with NES virtual console games. The console will be connected to the remote controller. With its remote setup, the old kids' fight over the controller has vanished.

Moreover, NES Classic Edition has a good saving feature. The state of the game that the users are playing can be saved in a file for retrieval as they resume the game in another time. It has writable storage and uses HDMI cable and AC adapter.

When Nintendo started selling through different online and offline retailers, buyers in the U.S. and EU usually opted to have NES Classic Edition consoles delivered to their home in requested days, not weeks. The product is on Amazon's free prime shipping service.

On Nintendo website, NES Classic Edition is $59.99 MSRP only. Via Amazon, it has a slight premium over the regular price. The Classic Controller is sold separately at Just $9.99MSRP each.

Three decades ago, in 1983, Nintendo first gave users a gaming pleasure and joy albeit, in non-sleek, non-sophisticated TV platform, the original joy in raw gaming is again much sought-after these days in the pitched sales of NES Classic Edition.
