Japan Gets "Shonen Jump" Themed Famicom Mini

Meanwhile, the NES Classic returns to stores on June 29

 

If you thought it was tough to get your hands on an NES Classic when the mini-console first launched, Japan has something even more unique and potentially elusive in store. A special Famicom Mini is on the way to Japan to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, and it's bringing 20 Jump-centric games along for the ride. 

 

Dragon Ball, Fist of the North Star, Captain Tsubasa, Kinnikuman, Saint Seiya, and other classic Jump properties are among the included games. The console launches on July 7 for ¥7,980 (about $73), and you can see a trailer and a full list of games below.
