Nintendo Reveals The Mini-Famicom For Japan

The Mini-NES is cute, but the Mini-Family Computer is cuter.

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.
  • Pac-Man
  • Excitebike
  • Balloon Fight
  • Ice Climber
  • Galaga
  • Yie Ar Kung-Fu
  • Super Mario Bros.
  • The Legend of Zelda
  • Atlantis no Nazo
  • Gradius
  • Ghosts 'n Goblins
  • Solomon's Key
  • Metroid
  • Castlevania
  • Zelda II: The Adventure of Link
  • Tsuppari Ozumo (Shoving Sumo)
  • Super Mario Bros. 3
  • Ninja Gaiden
  • Mega Man 2
  • Double Dragon II: The Revenge
  • Super Contra
  • Final Fantasy III
  • Dr. Mario
  • River City Ransom
  • Downtown Nekketsu Koushinkyoku: Soreyuke Daiundoukai (A River City Ransom Title)
  • Mario Open Golf
  • Super Mario USA (US version of Super Mario Bros. 2)
  • Kirby's Adventure

Notable new titles include Yie Ar Kung-Fu, Solomon's Key, Final Fantasy III, Mario Club Golf, River City Ransom, Downtown Nekketsu Koushinkyoku: Soreyuke Daiundoukai, Atlantis no Nazo, and Tsuppari Ozumo.

Third-person action-adventure games are his personal poison: Uncharted, Infamous, and Assassin's Creed just to name a few. If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
