Japanese company Columbus Circle is hopping on board the SNES Mini hype train by releasing its own clone of the popular 16-bit console.

The SFC Compact HDMI console launched in Japan today and plays both Super Famicom and NA/EU SNES cartridges. 

It comes bundled with two controllers, an AC adapter and both HDMI and AV cables, and costs 9,936 Yen (approximately $90 / £66).

This system will be fighting for the attention of consumers alongside Hyperkin's upcoming Supa Retron HD, which also plays SNES games in high definition. Are you tempted to invest? Let us know with a comment.
