The retro gaming scene is getting overcrowded these days and, after many years of retrogaming done for the most part by using emulators, it is now the time of compact, and fully licensed, real hardware.
The operation actually started many months ago, when the remake of classic original Nintendo was released, bundled with a selection of 30+ games (but with a single controller). The interesting thing is that Nintendo rebuilt and distributed differently shaped consoles according to their original market, so Japan actually got a cute remake of a console that we never saw in this part of the world.
I actually missed the first remake a year ago, so I decided to get the SuperNintendo Mini release, and I must admit that it looks awesome in my son’s room.
Most of all, playing together with my son games that were supposed to be long gone is definitely priceless, besides being a nice way to pass him our extensive video game knowledge thus preserving the memory of the past.
