NES Classic Edition
|NES Classic Edition|
Also known as: Nintendo Classic Mini: Family Computer (JP), Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System (AU/EU)
Nintendo throws their hat into the Plug & Play ring with a miniaturized NES that includes 30 built-in games. Thanks to multiple factors like being a well-polished compilation of famous games (first legally available in a DRM-free format), a higher quality emulator than on Virtual Console releases, being an open and moddable system (that can take Wii Classic Controllers), and of course just having the Nintendo name, it was an instant success that redeemed the category almost overnight just to repeat the performance next year. Good luck finding one near its retail price, though.
More revisional differences + production test menu that is also present in the SNES Classic Edition + possible debug functions.
Found in /usr/bin/kachikachi at 0x59988 is this message:
This is the hanafuda captain speaking. Launching emulation in 3..2..1. Many efforts, tears and countless hours have been put into this jewel. So, please keep this place tidied up and don't break everything! Cheers, the hanafuda captain.
The name "hanafuda captain" is most likely a reference to the hanafuda cards that Nintendo started out as a manufacturer of (and continues to sell in Japan even today). Hanafuda is also referenced in the Wii U's DS Virtual Console development info, so it's likely the internal codename for emulator development.
There are nine games exclusive to each version of the console.
Exclusive to the international versions:
- Bubble Bobble
- Castlevania II: Simon's Quest
- Donkey Kong Jr.
- Final Fantasy
- Kid Icarus
- Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream
- Tecmo Bowl
Exclusive to the Japanese version:
- Atlantis no Nazo
- Downtown Nekketsu Koushin Kyoku
- Downtown Nekketsu Monogatari (aka River City Ransom)
- Final Fantasy III
- Mario Open Golf (aka NES Open Tournament Golf)
- Solomon's Key
- Tsuppari Oozumou
- Yie Ar Kung-Fu
Any games that originally had different titles in Europe and Australia (Shadow Warriors and Probotector II: Return of the Evil Forces) use their respective American names in those versions of the NES Classic. The original European/Australian name of the former is still referenced on the back of the box, however.

There's a whole lotta words here, but not enough pictures. Please fix this.
- Appropriately, the design of the main menu differs depending on the region, being based on the design of the Famicom in Japan and the design of the original NES elsewhere.
- The game icons in the Japanese version are rounder than in the international ones.
- The international versions have a language select option. This is absent in the Japanese version.
