A Look At The Mini Famicom Controller

I recently ran a post about the mini Famicom releasing soon in Japan which comes preloaded with a load of original 8-bit retro titles. Today let’s take a look at the mini controller that comes with the unit.


Clearly it’s made for small hands but look how cute it is! Nintendo also posted some specs for the mini Famicom as well. At the bottom, the Katakana says that the controller isn’t included in the specs.


So it sounds like 9cm is what the mini controller measures in at while the original NES controller was approx. 3cm bigger.


Damn, that is some sexy packaging right there!


It’s tiny so admittedly it wouldn’t be comfortable for long time use but still, that is one cute controller!

Japan To Receive A Nintendo Classic Mini: Famicom

Hot on the heels of Australia receiving a NES mini system filled with retro 8-bit titles now Japan is to receive a similar release but with their version of the NES, the Famicom.


Straight off the bat, this looks amazingly gorgeous! It’ll be available in Japan from November 10, 2016 and will retail for ¥5,980 with an AC adaptor sold separately for ¥1,000.
