Hot on the heels of the reveal of the SNES Classic for Europe and North America, the Super Famicom has been revealed for Japan and all official details regarding the newly announced platform can be seen here:

Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Famicom With 21 Titles Included:
Nintendo Co., Ltd., (HQ: Kyoto Minami-ku; Representative Director and President: Tatsumi Kimishima) announced that the home console, Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Famicom, will launch on October 5, 2017 at a manufacturer suggested retail price of 7,980 yen (tax not included).
Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Famicom (to be sold as Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition in the U.S.) is a compact recreation of Super Famicom (sold as Super NES overseas), which launched in 1990, and features a collection of 21 titles selected from the rich library of Super Famicom games. The two included controllers have been recreated with the same size and button layout as the Super Famicom controllers, so you can relive the gameplay experiences of the ‘90s.
The product includes a USB cable (for power) and an HDMI cable, so you can connect the USB cable to the separately sold AC adapter(*) or another USB power supply and connect the HDMI cable to your home television to start playing right away.

Okay sure, so the Super Famicom has some games the SNES Classic doesn’t but at least it has the same number and the SNES Classic will arrive West first before landing in the East. So that in itself is an interesting difference.
Stay tuned for more!
