NES Classic Edition’s Game Manuals Available Online

Recommended Videos


The NES Classic Edition doesn’t include any manuals for its games in the box, but Nintendo has opened an official website offering 30 instruction manuals for the games in two formats.


The NES Classic Electronic Manuals are .PDF files that resemble the digital manuals included with standard Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo 3DS games. The Printed Manuals .PDF files are identical to the original NES instruction manuals that were included with the games when they were released. In almost every case, the Printed Manuals are more comprehensive than the Electronic Manuals, offering original art, story details and tips.


The NES Classic Edition is now available in North America and Europe.
