Nintendo Shocks with NES Classic Edition: a Retro Blast from the Past!

KS TechnologyI can’t help but feel the need to high-five my younger self. I woke up to the BEST news this week. Nintendo is bringing back the NES! It’s just a whole lot smaller.

nintendo new classic edition

On July 14th, Nintendo announced what it’s calling the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition. It looks exactly like the original gaming console, only miniaturized, and it comes with 30 built-in games!

The new system offers multiple suspend points and all of your favorite classic games. No cartridges or passwords required. Simply connect the NES Classic Edition to your TV with the HDMI cable provided, pick up the ‘original’ full-size NES controller (you heard me), and play the games that made you fall in love with Nintendo years ago.

Cool Fact: The new controller will also connect to your Wii Remote, so you can use it to play Virtual Console games on the Wii or Wii U.

The complete list of games:

  • 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

Nintendo Shocks with NES Classic Edition: a Retro Blast from the Past!

Rad Super Mario Bros. Watch Will Cost You Almost $19,000!

KS Technology

It’s items like this that make me feel like a teenage boy trapped in a 29-year-old female’s body. Take a second to soak up all the pixelated Nintendo goodness. The only catch? For the same price as this watch you could buy a new car.


The watch is Romain Jerome’s latest game-inspired piece, created in honor of Super Mario Bros. launch in 1985. There are only 85 Mario watches available, so if you have an extra $20k lying around, go ahead and treat yourself.

MOVEMENT Mechanical self-winding movement

DESCRIPTION Ø 46mm. Black PVD-coated titanium case. Grainy-textured stellar-patterned integrated back with Super Mario Bros. medallion. Black pixelated 3D dial built on three levels. Pixelated Super Mario Bros. character and elements appliques hand-painted in cold enamel with the 30th anniversary colours. Black rubber with grainy-textured interior of stellar-patterned strap.


The watch face features Mario jumping in mid-air, a fluffy cloud, iconic green bush, and the highly coveted mushroom. The RJ X Super Mario Bros. watch – commemorating the game’s 30th anniversary – costs a cool $18,950.

This isn’t the first time the company has payed homage to classic video games! They also built watches celebrating Tetris, Space Invaders, and Pac-Man. Enjoy 🎮

KS TechnologyIs this real life? First, Nintendo enters the mobile gaming ring, and now, THIS?! It’s time to blow the dust out of your old Game Boy and Game Boy Color cartridges, kids!

Super Mario Bros. Deluxe, Zelda, Pokeman, Donkey Kong Country … I’ve got to figure out what I want to play first!

Hyperkin, an independent video game hardware developer from Los Angeles, recently revealed their plans to release a Game Boy-compatible device for the iPhone 6 Plus. Don’t worry, there are plans for more compatible smartphones in the future!

The Smart Boy began as an April Fool’s joke, but is now a full fledged project designed for consumer release.




The Smart Boy, which resembles an old school Nintendo Game Boy, attaches to the bottom of the iPhone 6 Plus, and allows you to play your favorite games in HD. It features the familiar directional pad, start, select, and A + B buttons.

In the beginning, the Smart Boy will only be available in the classic “80’s grey” hue, but more colors may follow.

“We wanted to create a retro device that can be easily adapted into any modern gamer’s arsenal of devices,” said Hyperkin’s product developer, Chris Gallizz

The gameplay itself will output through the iPhone 6 Plus’ own screen, and the Smart Boy will be accessed through an exclusive downloadable Smart Boy app.

If Nintendo is smart, they will see the huge demand for classic gameplay on smartphones, and hopefully team up with Hyperkin (or something similar) in the future.
