Over the summer, Nintendo first announced the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) Classic Edition to the delight of fans of the original console. What many didn’t realize was that it would not be the only miniaturized device announced this year. Last Friday, Nintendo announced the Japan exclusive release of the Classic Mini: Family Computer, better known as the Mini Famicom. The first Famicom consoles were released in 1983. It was Japan’s edition of the NES that was later redesigned for North America and Europe.

Just like the Mini NES, the Mini Famicom will come with 30 classic 8-bit games. It will also come with an HDMI cable to connect to modern televisions and monitors. Save states will also be available in games on the console.

It will go on sale in Japan on November 10th, 2016 for ¥5,980 (around 59$ USD).
