On November 11th Nintendo will hold a social media bash, where fans can win 80’s themed prizes, including a NES Classic Edition. From November 11th – November 13th Nintendo is turning back on their Nintendo Power Line (425-885-7529), a phone number/system Nintendo use to run to help players struggling with different Nintendo games.
