There’s been a lot of news about the NES Mini over the past day or so. The western version received a proper blowout after members of the media had some hands-on time, and a Famicom equivalent was announced for Japan. Speaking of the Nintendo Classic Mini: Famicom version, we actually have more news on that front.

First, here are some additional photos:

The Japanese Nintendo Classic Mini: Famicom website is located here. On it, Nintendo posted various specs of the hardware. We’ve translated it all below.

This week’s episode of Nintendo Minute has gone live. In today’s video, Kit and Krysta show off the Super Mario Adventures and Zelda: A Link to the Past comics. Fans also have an opportunity to win each via a giveaway. View the full episode below.

The NES Classic Edition isn’t Nintendo’s first crack at emulating past games, though it might be its best attempt yet. GameXplain put together a video that shows how the hardware’s emulation stacks up against the Wii U Virtual Console, and it seems rather clear which one does the better job. View the full video below.

The overall reception to the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition has been very positive. However, there has been one concern: the controllers.

The NES Classic Edition does indeed feature wired controllers, and the length seems to be a bit on the stingy side. USGamer heard from Nintendo representatives during a hands-on session that the cord is around three feet in length. That means you probably won’t be able to stray too far away from your television while playing.


Today, Gamereactor shared some new videos of the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition. Along with another look at the hardware itself, they also show actual gameplay. We’ve posted the videos below.

Update: Bumped to the top. The Gold Mario amiibo is now available at Best Buy as well. Ness is up as well. We’re also hearing that Lucina is exclusive.

We’ve been hearing talk about a potential amiibo restock over the past few weeks, but now we have confirmation that it’s actually happening. Best Buy has started taking pre-orders for some amiibo that will be returning starting next month.

Here’s what we know of thus far:

Note that this list may not be complete just yet. It’s also possible that other retailers will begin taking pre-orders soon.
