Millennials are a nostalgic generation, and brands are cashing in, whether it be by bringing back old television shows or trying to upgrade Furby. Nintendo knows that we all miss its beloved Nintendo Entertainment System; the iconic 8-bit console was originally released in the mid-80s and brought video games into the home for the first time for many young players. Now, the company is capitalizing on that warm place in our hearts by bringing the console back from the dead. They're calling it the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition. 

The new NES looks similar to the original, only smaller. It connects to your television with an HDMI cable and comes with 30 games built right in. There's an old-school controller included, but with a spin: It can connect with a Wii U controller, allowing players to enjoy Virtual Console games on the Wii or Wii U. The new adorable NES will be out November 11 and costs about $60. Here's a full list of the games you'll be able to play on it this fall: 

Balloon Fight Bubble Bobble Castlevania Castlevania II: Simon's Quest Donkey Kong Donkey Kong Jr. Double Dragon II: The Revenge Dr. Mario Excitebike Final Fantasy Galaga Ghosts'N Goblins Gradius Ice Climber Kid Icarus Kirby's Adventure Mario Bros.
