HONEY, I SHRUNK THE FAMICOM!

Nin­tendo un­veils the Ja­pan-exclusive Nin­tendo Clas­sic Mini: Famicom

GAX (Malaysia) - - GAX / NEWS WIRE -

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).
