Nintendo to Release Manga-Based Famicom Mini in Japan

While America had the Nintendo Entertainment System, Japan had the Famicom. They were essentially the same device but with different color schemes. When the NES Classic Edition released, Japan was given the Famicom Mini instead. Now as part of the June 29 restock of the NES Classic, Nintendo is releasing a gold and red Famicom Mini that comes with 20 manga-based video games installed.

The Famicom (Family Computer) is celebrating the 50th anniversary of Shonen Jump, a weekly manga magazine home to famous manga titles like One Piece and Naruto. The games include Dragon Ball, Fist of the North Star, and more. Previously, the Famicom Mini only came with a selection of non-manga related video games installed.

The special edition Famicom Mini comes to Japan on July 7, costing ¥7,980 ($72.80). Anyone in a different country will have to scour the depths of eBay in hopes for a reasonably priced example of the console. Though "reasonably priced" is going to be rather steep still.
