A new take on retro games

RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA TV) - Video games are always a hot holiday gift. There are new systems and games coming out every year, but not all of them are originals.

Over the past few years, retro games have been making a comeback. The gaming systems they were originally played on are also being produced again.

Nintendo is one company that has produced retro systems the past two years. Both times the systems have quickly sold out.

Rich Rasmussen of GameStop in Rapid City believes the popularity is due to the wider audience. Those who played the games as kids want to play for nostalgia's sake, and those who are new to the games want to play them for the first time.

No matter the reasoning for wanting the retro systems, you better act fast this holiday season to grab one before it's gone.
