How’s this for a throwback?

Nintendo, which has spent the past week reconnecting with gamers through the Pokémon Go phenomenon, got nostalgic again this morning with the unveiling of a new version of its classic Nintendo Entertainment System. Small enough to fit in the palm of a hand, the NES Classic Edition is slated to launch on Nov. 11 at a price of $59.99 with 30 original NES games built in, including classics from the Zelda, Mario, Metroid and Donkey Kong franchises.

The device, which the company describes as a “near-identical, mini replica of Nintendo’s original home console,” will come with an included HDMI cable, making it easy to plug into modern high-definition displays. A classic NES controller will also be included, and another can be purchased for an additional $9.99.

Redmond-based Nintendo of America hasn’t released detailed specs on the new console, or said whether it will be possible to load additional games on the device. Here’s the full list of games.
