Nin­tendo Clas­sic Mini

NIN­TENDO WEL­COMES YOU BACK TO THEIR 8-BIT WON­DER­LAND FULL OF CHARM AND NOS­TAL­GIA

DE­SIGN

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.

FEA­TURES

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.

PER­FOR­MANCE

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.

US­ABIL­ITY

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.
