If you were curious about what was inside the housing of the Nintendo Classic Mini then you might feel a little disappointed, because Nintendo Classics has Raspberry Pi inside. The found technology is similar to that found in the Raspberry Pi 2, although Nintendo has customized the PCB to remove many of the basic components found in the original variant and they also directly soldered a NAND Flash chip of 512 MB in order to avoid SD card slot.
