Nintendo is bringing back the NES.

The company has announced the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition, a smaller version of its iconic 80s console that can be plugged into your TV via an HDMI cable.

Launching this November 11 for $59.99, Nintendo’s retro box comes with 30 built-in games and an NES Mini controller.

You’ll be able to buy additional controller separately, but Nintendo says the Wii’s Classic Controller Pro is also compatible.

You can also use the NES Mini controller to play Virtual Console NES games with your Wii or Wii U, by connecting it to the Wii Remote.

Bundled in the box is the aforementioned HDMI cable and a USB cable, which Nintendo says you’ll need to power the console, but later admits that you’ll also need an AC adapter (not included) for it to work. Chances are you already have one lying around at home, though.
