HONEY, I SHRUNK THE FAMICOM!
Nintendo unveils the Japan-exclusive Nintendo Classic Mini: Famicom
Back in July, Nintendo announced that it would be launching the NES Classic Edition in November, which will come replete with 30 classic games pre-installed. Sounds promising, unless you’re living in Japan, because the NES Classic Edition won’t actually be available there – it will only be sold in North America and Europe. Why? Perhaps it has something to do with the recently announced Nintendo Classic Mini: Famicom which, as you might’ve guessed, will be exclusive to Japan. Like the NES Classic Edition, the Nintendo Classic Mini: Famicom – which looks exactly like the original Famicom from 1983, but with a much smaller footprint – will be preloaded with a library of
30 iconic games, including Donkey Kong, Pac-Man, The Legend of Zelda, and Super Mario Bros. Unlike the NES Classic Edition, however, this Japan-only system will include titles like Yie Ar Kung-Fu, River City Ransom, m,
Final Fantasy III, and more. e. The Nintendo Classic Mini: Famicom is powered ed via Micro-USB, and will be able to output video through its HDMI port. Itt will even come with two miniature wired controllers ers slotted into both its sides, s, just like the original Famicom.
If you’re fortunate enough to be living in Japan, you will be able to get your hands on the Nintendo Classic Mini: Famicom when it launches es on November 10, 2016 for 5,980 yen (approx. RM245).
