Get ready to play with power all over again.

Nintendo had a big, albeit short-lived, bump on the stock market last week, but it wasn’t just because of the popularity of their phone app Pokémon Go. The announcement of NES Classic Edition helped bring a lot of good will back to the iconic game company, which had been suffering after lack of interest in the Wii U.

We were excited about NES Classic after it was unveiled last week – the mini-console has HDMI connectivity and will come preloaded with 30 classic games, including Metroid, Castlevania, Final Fantasy and more (check out the full list here). And we’re itching even more to get our hands on the nostalgia-bait now that we’ve seen the commercial.

It doesn’t reveal more than we already know, but it’s giving us hope that if Nintendo can do this right, the Super Mario Bros. movie remake could actually be something watchable this time.

NES Classic Edition is in stores November 11.
