Nintendo is bringing back the Super Famicon (kind of)

Nintendo is bringing back the Super Famicon (kind of)

Two weeks ago Nintendo revealed it is bringing classic Super NES games to its portable 3DS consoles, but now it seems the Japanese giant is going the extra mile for its most nostalgic gamers.

During yesterday’s Nintendo Direct presentation, the company unveiled plans to launch a Super Famicon-inspired New 3DS XL device.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

Drawing on the design of the classic PAL Super Nintendo, the special edition console will come in the familiar grey color scheme and will also feature buttons on the outer shell.

The modified New 3DS XL will hit the stores in April at the price of 21,600 yen (or approximately $190).

Unfortunately, Nintendo hasn’t yet announced plans for international release, which means the Super Famicon-themed 3DS device might be available only in Japan.

Bummer.
