Nintendo launches Famicom Mini console for Japan
The Japanese gamers will get their own version of the Mini NES, we refer to the Nintendo Classic Mini Family Computer, a system that is more appropriate for the Asian region.
In the same way that of Western edition, the Famicom Mini is a smaller version of the classic 8-bit console, only instead of having the design of a NES, and has the structure of the legendary Famicom.
Like the Mini NES, it will connect to TVs via HDMI and will feature 30 different games already installed. Unlike the Western edition, the Famicom Mini will feature 2 controllers, to honor the original version.
