NES Classic Edition returning to stores next month for Nintendo fans

The system that started it all is returning to stores in June.

The NES Classic Edition is a miniaturized version of the NES, originally released in 1985.



Plug the NES Classic Edition into your TV, pick up the gray controller and rediscover your childhood.

The console comes with the original controller and can be used with NES Virtual Console games on the Wii or Wii U by connecting it to a Wii Remote controller.

Demand skyrocketed in November 2016 when the system first went on sale, but the product was discontinued in April 2017.

The NES Classic Edition retails for $59.99 and returns to stores on June 29. They are then expected to be available through the end of this year.
