The premiere of Nintendo Switch has not cooled yet but the company already announced the release of another console in the summer 2018. But it will not be a brand new console, it will be an old new NES Classic!
The new console includes 30 pre-installed games and an HDMI plug with one entire controller can be connected to Wii U! Nintendo likes to sell them separately and so we should be thankful for it!
The manufacturer claims the console will include:
- several screen modes, among them a classical 4:3 mode allowing to plunge into the atmosphere of the 1980s;
- CRT filter allowing to get the feeling you play on the old TV-set with a large kinescope;
- «Ideal pixel», required to make pixels big and smooth exactly like it was supposed to be.
If you ask yourself why do you need this old model if there are many other products, with new games, improved graphic, portability. Actually there is no answer. It is a special magic of Nintendo always to be in trend.
First they love to play with nostalgic feeling, when such consoles were luxury and rarity. And here is exactly the NES that was released in 1980s!
Second their games are really catchy. There is nothing really special, no insane graphic, no online gaming, a very limited number of games… But they always challenge.
Can you get past that level of “Donkey Kong” without having hit a monkey head? Can you discover all secrets of “Zelda”’s underground? Can you pass the first level in “Metroid”? Тhese games are complicated enough and bring a lot of surprises in the process. They are funny, have their own unique atmosphere and history. That is the reason why thousands of players in the entire world ask Nintendo to prolong the release of old consoles by adapting them to new TV-sets.
For instance, SNES (Super Nintendo Entertainment System) has also prolonged the release till 2018 even if Nintendo promised to stop its sells this fall 2017.
That’s real: out with the new, in with the old!
