In November plenty of gamers with a love of retro gaming are likely to pick up the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition / Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System. Now, Nintendo has confirmed an equivalent for Japan; yep, it's a mini Famicom.

What's particularly charming about this one is that it has two controllers included to match the original hardware. Like the 'mini NES' we're getting in the West this Japanese model will also have 30 games pre-installed, and boasts the same HDMI output, viewing options and save state features.

It's worth having a look at the official website, and the reveal video below shows it off rather nicely.

This'll be released in Japan on 10th November for 5980 Yen (pre-tax), which is roughly $60. Gamers in the West that want one will naturally need to explore import options; we'll keep an eye out for any promising listings on that front.
