Back in 2016, Nintendo released the NES Classic Edition—a plug and play miniature console pre-loaded with 30 classic games. In Japan, this device came as the Famicom Mini, and its game lineup was slightly different. Two years later, Nintendo has decided to revisit this product, but with a twist.

The new version of the Famicom Mini will come loaded specifically with games based on anime. The Nintendo Classic Mini Famicom Weekly Shonen Jump 50th Anniversary Edition (what a mouthful!) is packed with 20 games from Weekly Shonen Jump properties. The list includes:

  • Captain Tsubasa
    • Captain Tsubasa
    • Captain Tsubasa 2
  • Dragon Ball
    • Dragon Ball 3: Gokuden
    • Dragon Ball Z: Kyoushuu! Saiyajin
    • Dragon Ball: Shenron no Nazo
  • Dragon Quest
    • Dragon Quest
  • Famicom Jump
    • Famicom Jump: Hero Retsuden
    • Famicom Jump II: Saikyou no Shichinin
  • Fist of the North Star
    • Hokuto no Ken
    • Hokuto no Ken 3: Shin Seiki Souzou Seiken Restuden
  • Kinnikuman
    • Kinnikuman: Kinnikusei Oui Soudatsusen
    • Tag Team Match: Muscle
  • Saint Seiya
    • Saint Seiya: Ougon Densetsu
    • Saint Seiya: Ougon Densetsu Kanketsuhen
  • Others
    • Ankoku Shinwa: Yamato Takeru Densetsu
    • Destiny of an Emperor
    • Magical Taruruuto-kun: Fantastic World!!
    • Rokudenashi Blues
    • Sakigake!! Otokojuku Shippuu Ichi Gou Sei
    • Sekiryuuou

As cool as it would be to see this special version of the already special mini console come to the West, it’s probably a long shot. While you lament the fact that you’ll probably never own one, you can check out footage of the Nintendo Classic Mini Famicom Weekly Shonen Jump 50th Anniversary Edition below.
