The name says it all, this is a tiny edition of the popular console, that has HDMI output for modern TVs, it has an internal lithium battery that can be charged via a USB connection.

There are 30 built-in games, ranging from the Mario series to some less well-known RPG games. The NES mini was universally praised for the quality of the released games.

There are slight variations of the releases from each region, some games were not as well received or sold as well in Japan as they did in the west, and vice versa.

Also Japan of course got a small version of the Famicom console which was not at all the same shape as the western NES, this edition also got a non working Famicom Disk System box that could sit underneath for completist's sake.

The machine was controversial, in that demand far outstripped supply, with many retailers having to cancel orders that they could not fulfil.

Nintendo re-released the machine a few months later to satisfy some of the demand.
