The day before Nintendo of America releases its miniaturized version of the Nintendo Entertainment System, known as the NES Classic Edition, Nintendo of Japan will release a tiny retro console of its own. The Nintendo Classic Mini Family Computer will hit Japan on Nov. 10, and will retail for 5,980 yen (about $60).

Just like the mini NES Classic Edition, Nintendo’s mini Famicom will come packed with 30 pre-installed games. The list of Famicom titles included with the Nintendo Classic Mini Family Computer differs from its North American counterpart, trading titles like Punch-Out!!, Kid Icarus and Castlevania 2: Simon’s Quest for Japan-only fare like Atlantis no Nazo, Downtown Nekketsu Kōshinkyoku Soreyuke Daiundōkai and sumo wrestling game Tsuppari Oozumou.

Note that if you plan on importing, an AC adapter for the mini console is sold separately.

Here’s the full list of titles included in Nintendo’s mini Famicom:

  • Atlantis no Nazo
  • Balloon Fight
  • Castlevania
  • Donkey Kong
  • Double Dragon 2: The Revenge
  • Downtown Nekketsu Kōshinkyoku Soreyuke Daiundōkai
  • Dr. Mario
  • Excitebike
  • Final Fantasy 3
  • Galaga
