Following the announcement of the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System for the North American and European markets, the Japanese arm of Nintendo predictably announced with a press release its own version of the console, carrying its original name: Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Famicom.

The console will look quite different from its American counterpart, and similar to the European version, pretty much like the original. According to the press release, it will launch on October 5th, 2017 for 7,980 yen (plus taxes), translating to roughly $71.

The unit uses an USB cable for power, and is compatible with the Nintendo Classic Mini: Family Computer AC Adaper. A dedicated adapter will be sold separately for 1,000 yen (plus taxes).

Same as the western versions, the unit will come with two dedicated controllers.

Like its western counterparts, 21 games will be included, even if the list is slightly different. You can check it out below.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
