Nintendo to release Mini Famicom in Japan

After Nintendo's official announcement about the release of the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) Mini for United Kingdom and North America, the software company has unveiled the Nintendo Classic Mini: Family Computer that will only be available in Nintendo’s home country – Japan.

As the name suggests, the Mini Famicom is a miniature type of the Famicom – the Japanese version of the NES released in 1983.
