Nintendo Releasing Special Edition Famicon Mini with Manga Games May 14, 2018 The NES Classic isn't the only thing coming back. Nintendo originally released a Famicon Mini back in 2016 that pretty much had the same games as the NES Classic. Now they're releasing a new special edition of the micro console, scheduled to hit Japan this summer. This new edition of the Famicon Mini, is being released to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, a magazine that prints serial mangas like One Piece and Boruto. This console will be loaded with games based on popular mangas, like Dragon Ball, Saint Seiya, and Fist of the North Star. The Famicon was the original Japanese version of the NES, released in Japan in 1983. The throwback console will be released in Japan on July 7th for ¥7,980 ($72.80) and there are no known plans to make it available outside of the country, so Nintendo obsessives in North American can expect to spend a pretty penny on eBay if they want a unit for themselves.
