Say Hello to the Famicom Mini, Japan

Nintendo fanboys (and fangirls!) in the west were given a treat via the NES Classic Edition, a shrunken down version of the legendary console that contained 30 classic games and would hook up to an HD TV. Now, Japan is getting its own version of the Classic Edition, however, this one will be more in tuned with what the nation had during time: The Famicom.

That’s right, the “Nintendo Classic Mini Family Computer”, or Famicom Mini, will be much like the NES Classic Edition. However, it’ll look like the Famicom in color scheme, and will have two controllers, for that is how the console was released back in the day. And just like the classic controllers, you’ll be able to rest them on the mini-console when you’re done playing.

The Nintendo Classic Mini Family Computer will have these 30 games installed at launch:

  • Donkey Kong
  • Pac-Man
  • Excitebike
  • Balloon Fight
  • Ice Climber
  • Galaga
  • Yie Ar Kung-Fu
  • Super Mario Bros.
  • The Legend of Zelda
  • Atlantis no Nazo
  • Gradius
  • Makai Village
  • Solomon’s Key
  • Metroid
  • Castlevania
  • Adventure of Link
  • Bumping Sumo
  • Super Mario Bros. 3
  • Ninja Gaiden
  • Mega Man 2
  • River City Ransom
  • Double Dragon Ⅱ The Revenge
  • Super Tamashito Luo
  • Final Fantasy Ⅲ
  • Dr. Mario
  • Downtown Nekketsu March Soreyuke
  • Mario Open Golf
  • Super Mario USA (Super Mario Bros. 2 in the US)
  • Kirby’s Adventure

The Famicom Mini will release in Japan on November 10th.
