When the Nintendo Entertainment Center was first released, Ronald Reagan was president, Back to the Future owned the box office, The Cosby Show was the number one show on television, and Madonna's Like a Virgin was the number one hit song.
A lot has changed.
One constant though, 33 years later, is the nostalgia that Nintendo brings to video gamers across the country.
On June 29, the nostalgia returns.
The company announced on Twitter that Nintendo's classic system will make a comeback and stay available through the end of the year on store shelves.
The system, while smaller than the original, will include one classic controller and 30 pre-installed games, according to Nintendo's website.
The 30 games include Super Mario Bros., Metroid, Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, The Legend of Zelda, and Kirby's Adventure.
The controller will even work with modern-day Nintendo consoles.
The system has returned in the past in limited supply, making it difficult for many to get their hands on one. This time, Nintendo fans will have roughly half a year to buy the system and relive their childhood.
