Wait, What? Nintendo To Discontinue NES Classic In North America
The Movie God   |  

Nintendo's Mini NES Classic Edition

Those who grew up playing the original Nintendo Entertainment System were overwhelmed with excitement last summer when it was revealed that a mini version of the console was on the way, complete with 30 games pre-loaded on it including the Super Mario Bros. games, two Zelda games, and many more. Sadly that excitement was premature. The NES Classic Edition was one of the hottest holiday gift items, but its launch was a classic disaster. The $60 bundle of nostalgia was sold out. Everywhere. All the time.

But instead of fixing the problem, making boatloads of cash, and being happy while bringing happiness to others, Nintendo seemed content with things as they were. Even to this day, if you want to secure one on Amazon it’ll cost you far more than it should cost you buying from third-party sellers. And now, the perfect cherry on top of this shit sundae, the company has apparently decided to discontinue the NES Classic in North America altogether.

Trailer For Nintendo’s NX Console, Nintendo Switch; Will Run ‘Skyrim’
The Movie God   |  

Nintendo Switch

Today Nintendo introduced the world to their latest home console, which was code named the “NX” but will officially be called the Nintendo Switch.

To show their excited fanbase, who have been desperately awaiting more info on the new console, what it looks like, Nintendo has released a preview trailer. It shows all the good stuff you’d want to see if you’re interested in buying one, of course. But it also includes some surprises, such as the ability to play Bethesda’s The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. That’s the kind of game Nintendo users usually miss out on, and now they’ll get a chance to get lost in that world like many others have before them, and will be again soon with the release of Skyrim Remastered. It could also be exciting for longtime fans of Skyrim, as the new console will give them the option of playing it anywhere.

You can see how the console looks in the trailer below.
