Nin­tendo’s new retro games con­sole

The Week - Junior - - On Screen -

Imag­ine car­ry­ing around Mario Kart and The Leg­end of Zelda on a games con­sole that’s small enough to put in your bag. For once, we’re not talk­ing about the Nin­tendo Switch.

This week saw the re­lease of Nin­tendo’s Clas­sic Mini SNES, which is a brand-new ver­sion of a con­sole that orig­i­nally came out in the UK in 1992.

It comes with 21 pre­loaded games, in­clud­ing the very first Mario Kart, Su­per Mario World and The Leg­end of Zelda: A Link to the Past, along with other fa­mous games of the 1990s.

Two con­trollers de­signed to look like the orig­i­nal gamepads are thrown in, too, for play­ing against a friend – or, we sus­pect, against a par­ent who’s more ex­cited about these old games than you are.

The mod­ern ver­sions of these games are big­ger and bet­ter, but it can be in­ter­est­ing to see how they orig­i­nally started out.
