The NES retro system will release November 11th for $59.99 and Nintendo will be having a launch party as well.

  • On the night of Nov. 10, fans who visit the Nintendo NY store in Rockefeller Plaza will have a blast in the past with an ’80s-themed launch event.
  • On launch weekend (Nov. 11-13), Nintendo is also bringing back its righteously nostalgic Power Line for three days only.
  • On Nov. 10 and Nov. 11, its social media channels will go completely retro to a time when “social media” involved trading passwords and game tips on the school bus.

Nintendo will also be reviving the Power Line which will be available from Nov. 11 to Nov. 13, between the hours of 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. PT each day.  The phone number is (425) 885-7529 to hear recorded tips for several games, plus behind-the-scenes stories from original Nintendo Game Play Counselors.
