The classic NES is back in a familiar-yet-new form as a mini replica of Nintendo’s original home console. Plugging directly into a high-definition TV using the included HDMI cable.

Nintendo’s follow-up console to the legendary Nintendo Entertainment System, returns in a new petite form as the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System.

Launched in Australia and New Zealand in 1992, the Super Nintendo introduced what many consider some of the greatest video games of all time.

The NES Mini includes 30 pre-installed games and the SNES Mini includes 21. Neither mini console comes with a power adaptor, but you can use any USB power adaptor.
