It is true. Nintendo will not only bring back 30 of the most beloved video games, but the console will actually look similar to the original, which was released in the '80s. The miniature gadget will perfectly fit in the hand and — unlike the old one you used to play with as a child — it will also feature an HDMI port, so that you won't be needing your old TV as well.

Gamers feared it may not be the same, but the company made sure the console will actually preserve its retro feel, to bring back old-school experiences. The games can be browsed by release date, title or publisher and can always be switched from "pixel perfect" mode to the 4:3 mode, to give graphics a stretched look.

The manuals can be opened through scanning a QR code with a smartphone. And while they are scans of the original manuals, this is the only bit that will actually use modern technology.

The best news is it's not only the gray controller that makes it worth all your grown-up money, but the retro menu as well. Because of the degree of similarity with the original console, this one will lack a home button, and surfing back to the menu or saving the game (which is now possible) is done through the Reset button.

The date of the NES Mini's official release is Nov. 11, and the price will also take you back in time. For no more than $60, you will have the childhood games right back for the smallest price possible on the market. The controllers will be sold separately for $ 9.99.

People who went to the San Diego Comic Con have confirmed the console was also advertised in a retro manner and comes in the original box as well. Although it's quite complicated to anticipate whether the consoles will be easy to find in stores, based on Nintendo's popularity, we'd advise you to take your chances and be among the first who buy it.

"We don't want all of these ending up on eBay. We do want to have these available, but a lot of it depends on the market. We know it's going to be pretty popular, and we're trying to account for that, but a lot of it will depend on what the consumers really do," said David Young from Nintendo of America.

While 30 of the games that made Nintendo so popular will be available to the public, others such as Bionic Commando, Duck Hunt, Dragon Warrior nor Blaster Master will not be.

Another heartbreaking, but predictable feature is the onboard memory on which all games are stored as default, making it impossible to download or add new ones. The old zappers won't be of any use either, since a multiplayer experience will require you to connect a Wii Classic Controller or a Classic Controller Pro.
