The upcoming Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition is already about as retro as retro can be, but if you want to take things to the next level you'll need a carrying case. No self respecting gamer in the late '80s would have been caught transporting their beloved consoles without adequate protection.
Enter RDS Industries, who have created what looks like the ultimate (and maybe silly?) solution for transporting your beloved NES Mini from A to B. Featuring a hard outer shell for protection and a soft foam insert for your system, two controllers and AC adapter, this certainly looks, well, functional.
A mesh pocket is included for HDMI and USB cables and accessories, and to top it off there is a carrying handle too.
Currently only available for preorder in North America, this is something we'd like to see make it over to Europe too. Let us know if you'll be picking one up or living life on the edge without soft foam goodness in your life.

Nintendo Top Secret...
It is an NX !
Oops...sorry . I mean a Mini NES ! XD
Well, the bag looks nice.
Looks nice. What's "random" or "silly" about it?
Can't wait. Now my 3DS cases have a new friend.
Reminds me a little of all the official Nintendo branded case accessories for the GC, particularly the little carry cases for GC discs as they're quite small but hold quite a lot of docs and great to keep near your cube rather than have all the game cases taking up space. I've got 4, glad I kept them.
Shame this case isn't officially Nintendo branded, but still looks good none the less and I'll consider it if it becomes available in the U.K.
That's kinda spiffy.
Works for me, think we'll have to get one.
prepare 2b mugged
Hopefully comes to uk. Hopefully that crazy price too.
@samuelvictor ah cool that's good then. The link doesn't work for me but I can just make it out from the picture above now you mention it. Thanks.
looks a little boring...or...generic!
Bol.com has it for preorder for € 19.99 in the Netherlands and Belgium
Can someone confirm. Link is not working
Gamemania.nl even has it for 9,98 in the Netherlands. Guess it's a mistake, but I preordered it anyway
Looks cool, but I'd just stick the thing in whatever rucksack I already own if I were transporting it around.
I'd get it if I had the NES mini pre-ordered. As it stands, not sure what the stock will be like come release day.
Only a month away, and no where to Pre-Order in the US? WTF NINTENDO!
I always get cases for my Consoles since the bag I had my GC broke and caused the Console to take a tumble down the stairs.
This is a must buy for me!
@Captain_Gonru You can't apply the term "odd" to Nintendo logic.
I'm guessing companies aren't taking NES Mini pre-orders b/c when each company asked Nintendo how many units they should expect to receive for launch they all got the same answer - "Not nearly enough." And I'm not even joking.
Can't accept pre-orders when you have no idea how many you'll get.
Well at least they shouldn't, I get the feeling Game in the UK does anyway, then they just cancel them after they get the liw stock in.
@Captain_Gonru OTOH, maybe retailers list this under "toys", have things like Tickle Me Elmo or Cabbage Patch Kids ever been available for pre-order? I can't remember any, but I'm not that hip. I doubt any of those Sega Gear systems ever came up for pre-order. Or those SpongeBob Squarepants direct-to-TV games. Maybe nobody in retail ever thought to make a $60 toy available that way? But of course this is your area, not mine, I leave it to you.
Oh I want one! This is good just for storage purposes. I wish i had bought up a bunch of the console crates back when they were big last gen... I need them now.
Pre-ordered this the moment it popped up on Amazon last night.
WHERE ARE THE PRE ORDERS AT GAMESTOP!!!!!!
Well, at least, I'll be able to "look" like I own a mini, since Nintendo's going to brutally under-stock the US distribution.
Oh, and pre-orders are 100% fiction here, apparently.
I hope you guys at NL are getting a bit of dough on the side for these amazon links, as I am using them! Pre-ordered!
And I appreciate the heads up on this stuff, so keep them coming!
You mean from B to A. Come on! How long have you been playing Nintendo?
So... Is this gonna be on UK Amazon or Nintendo store then? Will look wonderful next to my VB case!! 😊
Which is really weird considering that people don't take their home consoles out of the house unless they're moving.
You know, I can't argue with this. It's just plain weird that you can't pre-order it in stores.
Mm, I see. Sellbait!
But yeah, I am going to baby the heck out of the Mini NES when I get it though.
