Nintendo of Japan have released a trio of adverts for the Japanese market advertising the Famicom/NES Mini, their 8-bit era throwback entertainment system. The adverts have a striking resembelance to the original adverts they released for the Famicom back in 1983. The adverts showcase games like Super Mario Bros., Donkey Kong, The Legend of Zelda and Mega Man.

Here is the trio of new trailers, compiled into one video by Nintendo of Japan.
