Old school gaming is going to take over televisions this fall and winter.
Nintendo is releasing a miniature system that looks like the original Nintendo Entertainment System.
It will have 30 built-in games and connects to a television with an HDMI cable, The Verge reported.
The designers also looked to the past for the controller, copying the original NES gamepad.
But there is one downside. Players won't be able to use the old cartridges that are collecting dust in their closet.
The NES Classic Edition will be available November 11 for $59.99.
Classic games like "Galaga," "Donkey Kong," "Castlevania" and the "Super Mario Bros." series will be included in the 30 games.
A Sega Genesis emulator has been on the market for those who want the 16-bit gaming experience. That machine takes the old Sega Genesis cartridges.
There are also Atari and Intellivision consoles that resemble their original counterparts available.
