Posted on June 26, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News

Earlier today, the Super NES Classic Edition was announced for North America and Europe. Japan will also be receiving a similar product in the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Famicom, which has just been announced. It will be coming out a few days later on October 5.

The Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Famicom will have 21 games just like the Super NES Classic Edition. However, there are some differences in the games that are included. Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem, Panel de Pon (Tetris Attack), Super Soccer, and The Legend of the Mystical Ninja are featured in the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Famicom, for example.

Here’s the full announcement and lineup of games:

Nintendo Co., Ltd., (HQ: Kyoto Minami-ku; Representative Director and President: Tatsumi Kimishima) announced that the home console, Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Famicom, will launch on October 5, 2017 at a manufacturer suggested retail price of 7,980 yen (tax not included).

Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Famicom (to be sold as Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition in the U.S.) is a compact recreation of Super Famicom (sold as Super NES overseas), which launched in 1990, and features a collection of 21 titles selected from the rich library of Super Famicom games. The two included controllers have been recreated with the same size and button layout as the Super Famicom controllers, so you can relive the gameplay experiences of the ‘90s.
