Hot off the heels off of the instantly successful release of Pokemon Go, Nintendo continue their onslaught of nostalgia with the overnight announcement of the Nintendo NES Mini, set to release in November this year. Having made the announcement via Twitter, it didn’t take long for the news to send the Twitter-verse (and the internet in general) into a frenzy, as people took to the platform to express their excitement. But it’s not hard to see why everyone (myself included) is excited about this, with the NES mini coming with classic controllers and up to 30 preloaded games, including, Donkey Kong, Mega Man, Super Mario Bros and The Legend of Zelda, it means that if Pokemon Go hasn’t taken over your life, this definitely will.
Peep some of the tweets above. This is gonna be major.
