    Default The NES is now 20 years old What does Nintendo have planned?

    Nintendo/other companies seemed to go all out for the Famicom's 20th anniversary. I know that they get all the cooler stuff overseas, but, I was wondering if any of you had any ideas about what Nintendo may do to celebrate two decades of NES love?

    I myslef thought Nintendo would hold out and release the NES themed GBA Sp this year. I would guess they saw how much $$ the Famicom version was bringing in and could not wait to get it out over here.

    Maybe a Nintendo version of the Gamecube or DS?
    Any books, DVDs?
    Maybe a Gamecube compilations or classics collection series of discs? (unlikely, but, a guy can dream)

    my guess is more of the NES Classics line on the GBA.... other than that, i don't see any classic compilations for the GC really. nintendo knows they can hawk their shit piece by piece on the GBA, so why bother with a compilation that will cut into the profits of the GBA games.

    a 20 year retrospective book would be nice...

    I wish Nintendo would release something Nes related for the game cube

    A compilation disk with 20 or 30 of the best Nes games and 2 original style controls, now that would be awesome

    All I want is an "NES Classics" line that includes "Baseball Stars."

    They could charge $100 for it, and I'd still buy it.

    Don't say that too loudly, they might just do it!

    Hmm. I'd be surprised if Nintendo called this the 20th year anniversary.

    The NES wasn;t released until October 1985, so they have time to think something up.

    I remember someone made one of these by taking his GC apart and painting it, and when looking for an image of it, I came across this. I don't think it's the same one, especially because of the controller which wasn't a part of the project:



    Here's the controller:



    The website with these images is in Chinese, so I have no idea if this is official or anything.

    You found that on a Chinese site? That explains the jeux-france.com logo on the bottom

    But actually, that looks pretty darn sweet. MAKE AN NES/SNES PLAYER* and I'll be good to go!

    *why? because it'd be cheap!

    That gamecube is sweeeeeeeeeet!!! I think it would be cool if they made a few compilation games. There is already the Megaman one, but Nintendo could release compilations of some of their other big series that were featured on the NES.

    that gamecube is awesome!

    and yes, an snes/nes player like the gameboy player would benefit the world dramatically. but just think of how sparse the carts would be then?

    In a heartbeat.

    30 ported games with 2 "limited controllers", say $59 MSRP? Most definitely!

    That would be great, maybe they could even throw in some non us games in the compilation too.
    If they made a movie out of your top five worst sins, what would it be rated?

    It would rock if Nintendo released an All in One system like that new Atari 7800 system with a bunch of games built in.
