Whether you strutted around in pastels and parachute pants or blasted Kajagoogoo in your Yugo, odds are that you probably spent a good deal of time playing at least one classic video game in the 1980s. Now Nintendo feeds the current craze for all things '80s with both a limited-edition, retro-styled Game Boy® Advance SP and the Classic NES® Series, a group of eight Game Boy® Advance games that defined a decade and invented video games as we know them today.
The Classic NES Series includes eight Nintendo Entertainment System® titles remade for Game Boy Advance, such as Pac-Man™, Donkey Kong®, Super Mario Bros.®, The Legend of Zelda®, Excitebike®, Ice Climber®, Xevious™ and Bomberman™. Each game is now available at an MSRP of $19.99, while the Classic NES Limited Edition Game Boy Advance SP, tricked out in the red, gray and black design of the original Nintendo Entertainment System, is available at an MSRP of $99.99.
