In case you have been living under a rock, or you missed it because of your daily adventures on Pokemon Go, Nintendo is re-releasing the OG Nintendo Entertainment Center or some of you millennials might know it as the original NES. Well, I should not use re-releasing because it isn’t the exact same one that was released back in the eighties. It’s smaller. Real smaller.

On Thursday, Nintendo announced that they would release a smaller version of the gaming console but this one will not take cartridges. It will come with 30 pre-installed games and there is no way to add new games as it is not internet-enabled. Also, it will not come with that old RF connector that you needed to use with the old console.

It will come with an HDMI cable and will include the classic rectangular NES gamepad. You can grab a second controller for $9.99 or if you have one of those Wii U wired gamepads or the Wii Remote, so you can use it to play Virtual Console on a Wii or Wii U.

The Verge is reporting that the new mini-console will provide multiple suspend points. It takes away the old school struggle of using passwords to play a game from a certain point. The mini-console will be released on November 11th for only $59.99. In case you were wondering what the pre-installed games would be, here is a list:

  •  Balloon Fight
  • Bubble Bobble
  • Castlevania

  • Donkey Kong
