Nintendo officially announced that they are discontinuing the NES Classic. So instead of paying the outrageous prices people are wanting for them on eBay, lets build our own! I designed a case for a Raspberry Pi 3 to make it look and function like a SNES. With it running RetroPie, we can not only play our favorite SNES and NES games, we can play almost any retro video game we want. Lets build a SNES Mini.

One-upping the NES Classic Edition with the Raspberry Pi 3 and RetroPie

NES Classic is no more, but thankfully low-cost hobbyist boards are suitable for easy projects.

Last Nov., Nintendo astonished everyone by returning to its roots and releasing the NES Classic. The exciting emulator/nostalgia-fest began sudden requirement, including near-instant supply issues and 200-percent-plus markups in secondary markets. So in December of 2016, we decided to build our own version as a substitute. Since Nintendo bizarrely announced that it won’t be making any more of the hard-to-find mini consoles this week, we’re re-running this piece to help those people with a DIY streak yet again build your own. Hardware recommendations have been updated to reflect current availability and pricing for April 2017.

JB Hi-Fi Just Received The Mother Lode Of Nintendo Classic Minis

Christmas 2016 will permanently be kept in mind as the year people went legit bananas for a old style NES console. The thing was a piece of plastic that only played 30 games from the 8-bit era – but nostalgia is a ultra powerful thing. So powerful that demand entirely eclipsed supply, causing crashed websites, exhausted stock and a large number of empty-handed shoppers.

For people still on a Zelda-like pursuit to procure this mythical device, we’ve got some nice thing about it: the Nintendo NES Classic Edition is already available in JB Hi-FI stores, In australia. Hurrah!
