Fresh off the heels of the not-so-secret reveal of the Super NES Classic Edition, Nintendo decided to blow our nostalgic minds again with the announcement of a mini version of the Super Famicom. While the Japanese system includes a majority of the same games available in the SNES system, there are a few differences that will force Nintendo fans to decide which to buy—or just to buy both.

The Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Famicom will launch in Japan on October 5th, with a retail price of 7,980 yen, which comes out to $71 before tax. While the SNES Classic will feature the gray and purple button motif of the original SNES, the mini Super Famicom comes with colorful blue, green, yellow, and red buttons. As for the games included, twenty-one titles are packed inside, including the unreleased Star Fox 2 the SNES Classic also receives. However, the Super Famicom will swap the SNES’s Punch Out, Super Castlevania IV, Earthbound, and Kirby’s Dream Course for The Legend of the Mystical Ninja, Super Soccer, Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem, and Panel de Pon (known as Tetris Attack in the West). The remainder of the list is below:

  • Contra III: The Alien Wars
  • Donkey Kong Country
  • Final Fantasy VI
  • Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem
  • F-ZERO
  • Kirby Super Star
  • The Legend of the Mystical Ninja
  • The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
  • Mega Man X
  • Secret of Mana
  • Star Fox
  • Star Fox 2
  • Super Ghouls ‘n Ghosts
  • Super Mario Kart
  • Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
  • Super Mario World
  • Super Metroid
  • Super Soccer
  • Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers
  • Panel de Pon (Tetris Attack)
  • Yoshi’s Island

Preorder information is currently unavailable for the Super Famicom, but they could go on sale at any moment, as the SNES Classic Edition sold out on Amazon UK’s store within an hour. Nintendo revealed they would be producing more of the Super generation systems than the limited number of NES Classics, but collectors and those looking to make an extra buck might turn this launch into another fight for inventory.
