These are the different games that are on the Super Famicom and Super NES Classic Editions

Today, Nintendo announced three new retro gaming consoles as successors to its NES Classic Edition. Two of them are the Super NES Classic Edition (one for the US and one for Europe), and the other is the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Famicom, which is made for the Japanese market.

But all things are not created equal, and all three of them are different. The US and EU versions have the same games, but they look different. The Japanese and EU versions look the same, but they have different games. Are you following? That's OK.

This is the difference between the games offered from the Super NES Classic (or Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System, as it will be called in Europe, but we're going to stick with Super NES Classic for these purposes) and the Super Famicom:

Super NES (US and EU) Super Famicom Both
EarthBound The Legend of the Mystical Ninja Super Mario World
Super Castlevania IV Panel de Pon F-ZERO
Kirby's Dream Course Super Soccer Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts
Super Punch-Out Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting Super Street Fighter II Contra III: The Alien Wars
Super Mario Kart
Star Fox
Star Fox 2
Secret of Mana
Mega Man X
Super Metroid
Donkey Kong Country
Yoshi's Island
Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars (Super Mario RPG in Japan)
Final Fantasy III (Final Fantasy VI in Japan)
Kirby Super Star

All three consoles will ship with two controllers, a USB cable for power, and an HDMI cable. The US model is the only one that comes with an AC adapter, while in Europe and Japan, that will be sold separately.

US Europe and Japan

The Super NES Classic Edition will be available on September 29 in the EU and US, with a $79.99 price tag (pricing wasn't announced for Europe). The Super Famicom won't be available in Japan until about a week later on October 5, priced at ¥7,980 (~$71 USD), and the AC power adapter will be ¥1,000 (~$9).
