DuckTales-Remastered

The original DuckTales game for NES is one of the most beloved 8-bit games ever, so it was no surprise when it did quite well as a remake for consoles. Back in April, Disney brought the adventures of Scrooge McDuck in DuckTales: Remastered to the App Store for iOS devices and today we are seeing our very first price drop. Regularly listed at $9.99, you can download the game on all your iOS devices for just $1. Android gamers can actually grab the game for free right now courtesy of Amazon’s Underground program.

The original NES Battletoads soundtrack has been immortalized in this epic new vinyl LP

Battletoads and vinyl records, two seemingly disparate items that have both seen a resurgence in popularity over the past few years. Now the two are coming together for one epic LP release courtesy of vintage collectibles company iam8bit.

Being shown off on the show floor at Comic Con 2015, the vinyl record contains David Wise’s soundtrack from the original release. The (amazing) art work you’re seeing on the exclusive Sound Chip jacket and Dark Queen gatefold is a limited run of 300 specially made for SDCC. You’ll also find a sweet looking green and yellow print centered with the Battletoads logo on the record itself.

For those who unfortunately won’t be making it out to San Diego this week, the $25 LP will be made available sometime after the show as well, but it will feature different artwork, according to reports.

Battletoads first debuted on the NES back in 1991, and recently found its way back into popular culture after rumors of a remake, an appearance in Shovel Knight and the upcoming Xbox One release of Rare Replay from E3 2015. The excruciatingly difficult beat’em up is also being immortalized alongside the rest of the Rare Replay titles in a limited edition art print by DKNG.  The 18 by 24-inch hand-pulled screen print goes for $50 and there is only 400 of them. Unfortunately it is unclear whether or not it will be made available elsewhere, but you can bet it likely won’t be hand-signed and numbered like these are.

Game Boy XXL-Nintendo-giant-05

Nintendo’s Game Boy handheld console has inspired a wealth of mobile gaming devices over the years, from its own 3DS XL to tiny custom made players the size of a credit card, and many more. While Nintendo’s archive of famous titles and consoles have been emulated and hacked to death over the years, the new Game Boy XXL might be one of the biggest nods to the beloved gaming company yet.

Nearly as tall as a person, and capable of playing all your favorite Game Boy, NES and SNES titles, this is one giant bit of Nintendo nostalgia you won’t want to miss: expand full story
