Japan Is Getting A Mini Famicom And It Looks Pretty Awesome

While the West enjoys it's NES Mini, the Japanese will be gaming on their own miniature console. Nintendo announced today that the Famicom Mini will be releasing to the public in November exclusively in Japan. While similar in function to the NES Mini, there will be some differences between the two consoles in terms of game selection. For example, we get Tecmo Bowl and they get Bumping Sumo. 

If you're really interested in getting this I'm sure you'll be able to snag one online for about $80 when it's all said and done (including shipping). As long as you don't mind learning Japanese you'll be golden! Check out the trailer and list of games below...
