When it comes to mining nostalgia, especially the games and hardware many of us experienced for the first time as kids, it's essential to honor the source material. Calling it the Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System and then popping it into any other design would have been a huge misstep.
Luckily, it looks like Nintendo nailed the landing here. At a glance, the Nintendo Classic Mini truly is the original NES (seen above), although now you can hold it up in your hand. True, the controller ports a little different and the cartridge slot probably doesn't open - or if it does, it won't take your old games - but the retro look still warms our hearts.
And that's not all: check out the packaging below. By maintaining the classic appearance of the box on store shelves, Nintendo set this console up to bring back those decades-old memories of craving the thing every time we went shopping with mum. But this time around, we have a little something called disposable income. Hooray for adulthood.
