It's a shame it's limited to the built in games, but for what it is I'm happy with it and definitely getting one to put up in my bedroom.

While there is a part of me that really wants this thing, the more sane part of me realizes I am not the target audience of it. I already have a good portion of the games, I own a Wii U, and I am hopelessly addicted to off-TV play. As others have stated, I would have been more interested had I been able to purchase more NES games or if they managed to get some of the true classics on there like TMNT II: The Arcade Game, Ducktales, Dragon Warrior I-IV, Contra, Bionic Commando, River City Ransom, and many others.

Heck, had they just managed to get the Dragon Quest/Warrior games on Virtual Console I would be happy.

@Darknyht I'm just happy the controller is compatible with the wiiu. I will pick a solo controller up day one. 😍

Is there any reason why the preorders are still not up in North America yet but are in Europe weeks ago?

Nintendo of America is keeping the VC tradition alive.

@DarthNocturnal Not quite. To FULLY recreate the VC tradition, they'd have to delay preorders until next year (after its out).

Meh, NES mini doesn't have THE 2 best NES games of all times (besides the 30 games listed): Vice - Project Doom, Gyruss. Why would I want it?

I'm more concerned with missing entries that already have other games in their franchise:

  • Castlvania III
  • Mega Man I, and III to VI
  • Ninja Gaiden II and III
  • Contra (we've NEVER gotten this. What gives?)
  • Donkey Kong 3 (OK, not much lost there really)
  • Gradius II
  • Star Tropics II
  • Maybe the other Double Dragon games

The lack of Tetris doesn't bother me (although I get that others may want it). Same for Yoshi. And I stink at golf games.

Mysterious Castle Murasame would be neat as well.

@DarthNocturnal You have to remember it's not aimed at a hardcore Nintendo fan the NES Classic is aimed at more as an introductory system that's why they have the games they do. Megaman II for example is often held as the best in the Mega Man series, having one would scare players away cause of the difficulty and 4, 5, 6 are good but just not as good as two. So they wanted the best each franchise has to offer.

As for Tetris that's due to the rights. The right holder and Nintendo aren't on the best of terms.

@Tasuki

If they're worried about difficulty scaring people away, the list of games would be much shorter then 30. Ninja Gaiden, Zelda 2, Castlvania I, Ghosts N Goblins... entry level my foot.

EDIT: And most people (whether they grew up with it or not) would be bored or frustrated with FFI. And rightfully so.

Wow did you guys take my post out of context. My point is that Mega Man 2 is the favorite and seen as the best of the series that's why they included it and not any of the other six.

I did understand your context. Just saying that including Zelda/Castlevania 2 alongside their better-received brothers kinda goes against the idea.

They could've just included only one game from those series and put something else in place. Two extra puzzle or sport games could've rounded up the list a bit better.

Though you're definitely right that MM2 was probably chosen because it's the best of the bunch.

I thought Contra was one of the announced games?

Castlevania III is likely due to the MMC5 chip, which would increase the code complexity.
My guess is they didn't want to go overboard with single franchises to boost game variety. (except of course Mario, because... it's Mario.)

I'd have said Gradius II excluded due to not being "nostalgic" for most owners. But then Final Fantasy 1 is included, and for Europe I think this is the first time the NES version will technically be "physically" released there.
I played FF1 a while ago and it was still fun, but it contains a number of bugs that while technically not game-breaking, knowing your way around them might be needed to increase enjoyment.

@Meowpheel With Zelda it's probably the same reason as why they have all 3 Mario games, because it's Zelda. As for Castlevania II my only guess is because Castlevania II has become quite popular especially due to the AVGN mainly cause it was his first video.

Next they'll be condoning ROM hacks and letting people upload them on a “workshop“ of sorts...

...nah.
