Setting up the new NES Classic Edition seems simple (though I have not reviewed it yet) users need to just plug the NES Classic Edition into their TV and should work immediately.extra-controller

What's in the box Nina? Good Question! Below is the list of what comes in the box. Note you only get one controller so if you want to game with your friends you will need to buy the extra controller which is said to only be $9.99.

  • NES Classic Edition system
  • One NES Classic Controller
  • HDMI cable
  • AC adapter
  • 30 pre-installed games

The included NES Classic Edition Controller can also be used with NES Virtual Console games on your Wii™ or Wii U™ console by connecting it to a Wii Remote™ controller.
