If you’re a child of the ’80s or ’90s, you may remember the feeling of opening up a new game and paging through a beautiful instruction manual. Filled with pictures and tips to get you started on your adventure, these manuals were a staple of early gaming, almost all of which are sadly absent in many retail releases nowadays.

With tomorrow’s release of the NES Classic Edition, Nintendo is bringing back the manual, in a manner of speaking. Nintendo Japan has a manual archive for all 30 of the games that will come included on the NES Classic Edition – available to download or print at your leisure.
