Nintendo announces a Classic Mini version of the Super Famicom for Japan

Earlier today, Nintendo announced the Super NES Classic Edition, the successor to last year's NES Classic, and it will be available this September preloaded with 21 games. And just like last year's model, there will be a Famicom version as well, which is to be called the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Famicom.

Short for 'family computer', Famicom was the NES of Japan, so naturally, the Classic Mini version of the Super Famicon will be launched in the same region. As was the case with the Famicom Classic, the list of games is slightly different, although there are still 21:

Title Name Release Date Publisher Name
Super Mario World November 21, 1990 Nintendo
F-ZERO November 21, 1990 Nintendo
The Legend of the Mystical Ninja July 19, 1991 KONAMI

Super Mario RPG March 9, 1996 Nintendo
Kirby Super Star March 21, 1996 Nintendo
Star Fox 2 Unreleased Nintendo

One game that it does have in common with the Super NES Classic Edition is Star Fox 2, which is bound to be one of the selling points of the console, being that the game was never actually released.

The Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Famicom will come with two controllers in the box, as well as a USB cable for power and an HDMI cable. Unlike its North American and European counterparts, the AC adapter is sold separately.

The console will be available on October 5, for the price of ¥7,980, which translates to about $71 USD. The AC adapter will be offered at the same time for a price of ¥1,000, or about $9 USD.
