Reinventing the Classics: A New Take on the Iconic NES

Do you ever wish you could revisit and redesign the classics? There’s something almost sacred about the iconic classic NES design, but it is admittedly just a little boring. Designer Javier Segovia took it upon himself to give the original Nintendo Entertainment System a slightly more modern re-do in this rendering.

Smoothing out the corners and giving the system a new color scheme, Segovia keeps the console’s basic shape and identifying characteristics but makes it look like a gaming system that would be sold today. Gone are the painfully sharp corners and gray-on-white color scheme, but the concept keeps the boxy controllers that so many of us grew up with.
