Nintendo is now remaking the original Famicom with two controllers, HDMI output and a slick retro design


Watch out Nintendo fans, another retro-inspired NES console will be hitting the market later this year. Unfortunately, this one is going to be much harder to come by. Today, Nintendo announced the new mini Famicom, a miniaturized version of the original console. As you know, we’re just a few months away from the upcoming NES Classic. But this Asia-only release takes a slight different approach.

Most of the improvements here make this Famicom more attractive than what’s coming to the United States. Most notable is the inclusion of two wired controllers (versus one). Nintendo is also including 30 titles on the built-in storage, all of which will be in Japanese. Bad news? It doesn’t include a AC adapter like the new 3DS but does feature HDMI output. The new mini Famicom is set to hit shelves in Asia on November 10th for $59. No word yet on availability for American buyers, but you’ll certainly have to do a little importing to get your hands on it.
