Nintendo announced earlier today that it will release the Super NES Classic Edition this September in North America and Europe. The wee version of Nintendo’s 16-bit console comes packed with two controllers and 21 built-in games, the company said.
But Nintendo of Japan was quiet about the release of a Classic Edition-style Super Famicom for Japan, until now.
Japan will get the Nintendo Classic Mini Super Famicom this October, and it looks a lot like the model coming to Europe (which is based on the original Super Famicom design). But the list of included software for Japan differs from what Nintendo fans will get in North America and Europe.
The Japanese release of the Nintendo Classic Mini Super Famicom includes Ganbare Goemon: Yukihime Kyūshutsu Emaki (aka Legend of the Mystical Ninja); Panel de Pon, which came stateside as Tetris Attack; Super Formation Soccer (aka Super Soccer); and Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem. The mini Super Famicom will also ship with a different Street Fighter game: Super Street Fighter 2: The New Challengers instead of Street Fighter 2 Turbo: Hyper Fighting.
The Nintendo Classic Mini Super Famicom will ship with the following 21 games built in:
- Contra 3: The Alien Wars
- Donkey Kong Country
- Final Fantasy 6
- Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem
- Legend of the Mystical Ninja
- Kirby Super Star
- Mega Man X
- Panel de Pon
- Secret of Mana
- Star Fox
- Star Fox 2
- Super Soccer
- Super Ghouls n Ghosts
- Super Mario Kart
- Super Mario RPG
- Super Mario World
- Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
- Super Metroid
- Super Street Fighter 2: The New Challengers
- The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
The mini Super Famicom will cost 7,980 yen (about $71) and will be released in Japan on Oct. 5. The box art looks nice.
