I like the translation on this, with the whole, "... so people can have fun with this too." at the end. Like the person expects people to spend hours of giddy excitement switching between graphics modes for the games.

While I have no doubt it's lightweight, I had no idea it came with a hard drive! ;)

I get that you're just being technical, but I don't see how you gather that it comes with a hard drive. I thought the anal thing to say is a comment about HDD versus the reality of flash memory or SD card space.

I commented about the hard drive because the description uses that term, which doesn't even apply to this device. :) Plus, any internal storage like that is irrelevant to the product, since there's no mechanism to store arbitrary (or even user-selectable) data in there. Most NES games didn't take up more than 512k, I think the largest one was 1 meg. 30 megs of total storage would be more than enough to store all the games and all the save states you could ever want, with room to spare.

 

I can't imagine than an NES emulator would take up 2 gigs on a purpose-built device, even with a minimal OS under it. I mostly point and laugh at the fact that the amount, method, and relevancy of this bullet point appears to be pulled out of someone's ass at Target.

palnt cant do anything right

Target's not the only one either, I think another online store had a bullet point for a 1 or 2 GB HDD, because I remember making fun of it on GAF. :P

Odds are for hardware listings like this those shops' product management system have a "Storage capacity" field by default and whatever intern plugged in the info shit out a random number rather than disabling it. :P

Looks like the emulator was written by NERD (Nintendo European Research & Development, formerly Mobiclip and Actimagine), and is a brand new emulator, so no Wii/Wii U emulator reuse. Additionally, it seems possible that the console itself was developed by NERD.

NERD previously wrote the DS emulator for Wii U, the "super stable" 3D for the New 3DS, and the Wii U web browser's media player, as well as doing the legwork to get retail Wii games up for download on the eShop. Before being purchased by Nintendo they developed video codecs for games on Nintendo consoles and cell phones.

The Japanese equivalent, the Nintendo Classic Mini: Famicom has finally been announced, with a release date of November 10. Here's the trailer:



What's likely much more interesting for anyone outside of Japan is that they also released some more feature details, as well as glimpse of the UI, which presumably will be similar (if not identical) to the NES version.

We also have a look at two of the display modes the system will offer, 4:3 mode and CRT mode:

In addition to these two modes there will also be a pixel perfect mode, just like the SNES VC emulator on the New 3DS.

And for thoroughness, here's a comparison of both version's exclusives titles:
 

NES Mini:

  • Bubble Bobble
  • Castlevania 2
  • Donkey Kong Jr
  • Final Fantasy
  • Kid Icarus
  • Punch Out
  • Startropics
  • Tecmo Bowl
Famicom Mini:
  • Yie Ar Kung-Fu
  • Atlantis no Nazo
  • Solomon's Key
  • Tsuppari Sumo
  • River City Ransom
  • Final Fantasy 3
  • Mario Club Golf
  • Downtown Street Challenge
