Nintendo announces mini version of original NES console for Japan

PanARMENIAN.Net - Nintendo on Thursday, September 29 revealed the mini Famicom, a shrunken version of the original NES the company released in Japan, Engadget reports.

Just like the mini NES for the west, the Famicom mini fits in the palm of your hand and plugs into your TV via HDMI. It comes with two wired controllers instead of one, but the bad news is that it follows in the footsteps of the New 3DS -- it doesn't have a bundled AC adapter. You'll have to buy that one separately.

It will also be preloaded with 30 games, some of which like Final Fantasy III aren't on the mini NES. They are, however, in Japanese, so you may want to brush up on your Nihongo before grabbing the console. It also looks like you can have four saves per game, which is a huge plus if you live with another Nintendo fan.

The mini Famicom will be available on November 10, a day before the mini NES comes out in west, for $59. You'll have to shell out an extra $10 more for the AC adapter, though, not to mention the shipping fee if you're importing it from another country.

Here's the tiny console's full game list: Donkey Kong, Pac-Man, Excitebike, Balloon Fight, Ice Climber, Galaga, Yie Ar Kung-Fu, Super Mario Bros, The Legend of Zelda, Atlantis no Nazo, Gradius, Makai Village, Solomon's Key, Metroid, Castlevania, Adventure of Link, Bumping Sumo, Super Mario Bros. 3, Ninja Gaiden, Mega Man 2, River City Ransom, Double Dragon Ⅱ The Revenge, Super Tamashito Luo, Final Fantasy Ⅲ, Dr. Mario, Downtown Nekketsu Monogatari, Downtown Soreyuke Daiundoukai, Mario Open Golf, Super Mario USA, Kirby's Adventure.
