Ninty needs to make a GB/GBC/GBA to tv console!

A Wii Nunchuk can be connected to the system; it has 2 buttons and directional controls akin to a NES pad, and some NES games don't require the Start or Select buttons... I doubt it will work but one-handed retro gameplay would be pretty neat.

You can just use the Wii CC or CCP on it if the NES controllers are uncomfortable for you.

What's taking so long for preorders to show up?

But won't those be a bit short?

You'd need to carry the console on your lap (and a really long HDMI cable) or play old-style kneeling in front of the tv.

I am pretty sure that if they don't have them out already, by the time the NES Classic comes out, someone will have extensions for them.

It's the classic controller port, people have been finding solutions for this for ages:

Just when you thought Nintendo must have been somewhat amazed by the phenomenal success of Pokemon GO themselves, they're throwing out the next bomb! Totally out of the blue! And what an amazing offer! Console, controller, 30 games, for $60! For 30 NES Virtual Console titles, you'd pay $150! This is amazing, I've immediately preordered mine.

What's even more interesting though is the "Nintendo Classic Mini" label. Sounds to me like this will become a series, with SNES mini, N64 mini, etc. to follow. If this is going to happen, I'll apologize for my year-long (though totally justified) complaining about their poopy Virtual Console (I'd buy them all). Sure, having all games on one console would be convenient, but if you can buy the games with the actual consoles and save a lot of money with it, that is a deal.

Fingers crossed for SNES mini and N64 mini!

IGN have posted a video showcasing the NES, and the controller cable is worryingly short. May have to invest in a lengthy HDMI cable if you plan on playing far away from the TV.

That's a rather derp move. Surely they knew that people want to NOT be restricted by a cord?

I mean, it's still great for VC... but yeah, I was hoping for a standard controller cord.

The trailer says it is still under production, so I cross my fingers that the short cable is only for the prototype and not for the final unit. If not, well, I'll have to buy a long HDMI as you say because there is no way I'm playing so close to the TV.

I have a chronic lack of time, for everything.

Now playing: Okami HD, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
