Nintendo Will Release a Special Gold Famicom Classic Edition

Posted by May 14, 2018 Comment

Nintendo didn’t just make a bunch of classic edition consoles for their primary systems that made a mark globally, they also do it for the ones at home in Japan. Back when the NES Classic Edition was getting attention, the company also released a Famicom Classic Edition for the console that came before it. With the NES and SNES versions coming back, it was expected that we’d see the Famicom return as well. However, the one that’s arriving will be a little more special than before as they’re releasing a new gold edition of the console that looks pretty boss!


This edition is to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the manga magazine Shonen Jump and will contain an entirely new library of games based on anime series or games that had manga books designed around them. Several Dragon Ball titles will be added, along with games like Saint Seiya, Captain Tsubasa, Rokudenashi Blues, Dragon Quest, and more. Right now it says the price will be about ¥8,000, which comes out to be almost $75. It won’t be made available outside of Japan, however, and probably won’t come with any translations, so you’ll need to find a shop within the country willing to ship to wherever you live.
