Nintendo has announced on Twitter that they will be putting the popular NES Classic on store shelves next month.

The NES Classic won't be the only Nintendo retro console that will be available this year.

The system, while smaller than the original, will include one classic controller and 30 pre-installed games, according to Nintendo's website. Consistently sold out at retailers, the brand new NES Classic sold more than five million units, which is a great incentive for Nintendo to revive it.
