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:
