Nintendo has just released the $60 NES Classic Edition, if you can find one. However, if you happen to live in North America, you can also call the Nintendo Power Line for this weekend only to hear tips from Nintendo Gameplay Counsellors themselves.
The Nintendo Power Line is back for this weekend to celebrate the release of the NES Classic Edition. That makes its almost as limited as the mini-console itself. We dialed the number so that you can hear what the Gameplay Counsellors had to share for three of the 30 games features on the new 8-bit console.
On the call you hear from Gameplay Counsellors
- Legend of Zelda – Narrated by Gameplay Counsellor Pat
- Super Mario Brothers and Super Mario Brothers 3 – Narrated by Gameplay Counsellor Melvin
- Metroid – Narrated by Gameplay Counsellor Mark
- Mark also drops a tip for StarTropics, when you get to the point it asks for the code from the letter, enter the numbers – 747. The code is also mentioned in the NES Classic Edition quick start guide.
Below you can listen to the full call, or if you prefer, you can also dial the Nintendo Power Line yourself on +1(425)885-7529 this weekend.
While you might not be able to find a NES Classic Edition yourself right now, keep an eye on the likes of Amazon to pick one up when they are in stock.
