Following the epidemic success of Pokémon Go, Nintendo is delivering another concentrated shot of nostalgia with a reissue of its Nintendo Entertainment System console. The NES Classic Edition is basically a shrunken-down version of the iconic system. Don't blow the dust out of your NES cartridges, though—this compact console comes pre-loaded with 30 games from the system's back catalog. Polygon has the full list, but Final Fantasy, Donkey Kong, the Super Mario Bros. series, The Legend of Zelda, and Kirby's Adventure are some of the highlights.

According to Polygon, the reissued NES will connect to TVs or monitors using an HDMI port, and it offers two controller inputs for multiplayer fun with games that support it. A second controller is a $10 extra. The updated system appears to allow players to save game states, much like how modern emulators work. Gamers who want to revisit childhood favorites—or introduce the classics to a new generation—will be able to pick up the NES Classic Edition for $60 on November 11.
