Nintendo Classic Mini
NINTENDO WELCOMES YOU BACK TO THEIR 8-BIT WONDERLAND FULL OF CHARM AND NOSTALGIA
A solid effort to faithfully reproduce an unlikely design icon, the NES Mini was never going to win a beauty pageant but Nintendo has fully delivered on a build quality that totally surpasses all other plug and play consoles currently on the market.
With 30 of the most popular NES titles installed, there are hours of retro joy to be had. The custom menu system highlights the Nintendo quality, with a charming interface (accompanied by a quirky theme tune) for saving games.
In some titles we encountered graphical glitches at the edge of the play screen. Generally speaking, though, the emulation is superb and the sound quality stunning. Control is precise and a cabled controller minimises input lag.
The inclusion of an original styled controller presents a bona fide experience. The buttons are responsive and you’ll feel like a kid again. Our only gripe is that the cord is too short, so you’ll need an extra long HDMI cable for the console.
