Nintendo is Releasing a Special Golden Famicom With a New Library of Games

Celebrating Shonen Jump's 50th Anniversary.

Nintendio is celebrating the 50th anniversary of popular manga magazine Shonen Jump with a new re-release of the NES Classic. The kicker? It will feature classic games based around famous Shonen Jump properties.

The re-release, presumably because it's only slated for Japan-only at this point, will be modeled like the Japan Family Computer. Also it's going to be gold for some reason. So if you're a huge collector of Japanese consoles, this one might be a literal trophy in your collection.

Here's a list of games included in the 50th anniversary Shonen Jump version of the NES Classic.

  • Tag Team Match: MUSCLE
  • Dragon Quest
  • Fist of the North Star
  • Dragon Ball: Shenron no Nazo
  • Kinnikuman: Kinnikusei Oui Soudatsusen
