Nintendo has already announced the Mini-NES for North America, but the company has followed up with a second mini-console: a tiny version of the Nintendo Family Computer. The Nintendo Classic Mini: Family Computer is coming to Japan on November 10 for 5,980 yen. Like the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition, the Mini-Famicom comes pre-loaded with 30 8-bit games, though the Japanese system has a different list of titles.
Oddly enough, while the Mini-NES has detachable controllers, it looks like the Mini-Famicom controllers are always attached. It's also worth noting that the controllers are tiny. Tiny as hell.
Here's the full list of Mini-Famicom games:
- Donkey Kong
- Mario Bros.
- Balloon Fight
- Ice Climber
- Yie Ar Kung-Fu
- Super Mario Bros.
- The Legend of Zelda
- Atlantis no Nazo
- Ghosts 'n Goblins
- Solomon's Key
