Nintendo’s NES Classic Edition stars in wonderfully retro commercial

The collective internet is still recovering from the nostalgia knock-out punch from Nintendo last week. Out of nowhere, the Japanese company unveiled the NES Classic Edition, an old-school console that comes pre-loaded with 30 of the console’s most famous titles, including Super Mario Bros. 3 and The Legend of Zelda.

Now, Nintendo has released another dosage of retro goodness by introducing the NES Classic Edition’s first commercial, which is filled to the gills with NES nostalgia. Take a look back at some of the console’s most iconic titles, music, and more—there’s even a callback to one of Nintendo’s most famous slogans.

You can’t blame Nintendo for pandering to our lust for nostalgia. The NES is arguably the best console of all time and it’s nice to see the company introduce it to a new audience. At $60, the NES Classic Edition is a pretty solid deal, especially considering the strength of its lineup of games.

I already cleared up a small space on my desk for this. The NES Classic Edition comes out on Nov. 11.
