Apparently, it has been noted that the gaming community has been supporting classic games on their mobile phones. With over 2 million downloads, the "Super Mario Run" has been noted as a nostalgic game that Nintendo launched for iOS devices. The Nintendo Entertainment System game has also been noted as nostalgic.

The six Nintendo Entertainment System games are expected to be sold individually with beginner-friendly options. Moreover, there may also be adjustable game speeds as well as auto-fire and auto-charge. Moreover, every game can reportedly be synced with "Rockman Unity" app.
