Are the Nintendo Classic Mini Consoles Region-Locked?


No. The Nintendo Classic Mini consoles are "plug-and-play" consoles that include a set number of pre-loaded games. Each console is compatible with standard HDMI inputs on TV screens and monitors.

These consoles can be powered using a USB cable (Type A to micro B) and a USB AC adapter (output: 5V/1A).

They can also be powered using a USB port on a PC or other device with the following considerations:

  • Any device into which the USB cable is plugged must be powered on to provide power to the consoles.
  • Be sure to read the instructions of the device you are using and follow all warnings.
  • For more information about the USB ports on your PC or other device, consult the device manufacturer.
