Nintendo has revealed a suitably 80s ad to celebrate the return of the NES.

Announced one week ago, the NES Classic Edition is expected to hit shops in time for Christmas. It looks like a NES but fits in the palm of your hand and comes with 30 classic games pre-installed.

Cranking up the nostalgia, the ad starts with original NES footage from Nintendo classics including Super Mario Bros., Donkey Kong. Metroid and more, before inviting fans to ‘revisit retro gaming’s greatest icons in HD’.

Available from November the NES Classic Edition will no doubt be topping many 30-somethings Christmas lists.
