The Classic NES Series in North America (Famicom Mini Series in Japan and NES Classics in Europe) are a series of Game Boy Advance games that were originally released on the NES/Famicom and Famicom Disk System, emulated on the Game Boy Advance. A special edition Game Boy Advance SP, which has a similar color pattern to a NES controller, was released to go along with these games. The color of the cartridges match the color of the original NES carts. All of these games were released to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Famicom in Japan.

Both GameSpot and IGN noted that Nintendo had given away The Legend of Zelda for free in the Collector's Edition bonus disc, although they noted that the Classic NES Series version was portable. However, reviewers consistently hailed The Legend of Zelda as one of the games worth the cost of the cartridge.
