Miss out on the NES Classic? Play-Asia Has You Covered (Sort Of)

So, the untimely end of production of the NES Classic stinks. That’s no surprise. However, for those willing to invest, Play-Asia has a bit of a consolation for hardcore Nintendo fans.

Right now, Play-Asia have in stock (limited stock, mind you) the Nintendo Classic Mini Famicom, the Japanese version of the NES Classic, for approximately $110 USD. Granted, many of the games are in Japanese, and the lineup of games is slightly different, but at least you get something that’s more affordable than what scalpers are offering for the NES Classic. Plus, for horror fans, you still get Castlevania, Ghosts ‘N Goblins, Metroid and Super C. And, it’s all housed in the vastly cooler-looking Famicom. Much better than the grey box we got in the West.

Hopefully the SNES Classic doesn’t end up with the same shortage problems.

    I’m just fine with my trusty Nestopia.

  • Still have the one I purchased in 88 while stationed in Japan with all the games, 3D goggles and the works but it is cool these new ones can be played on flat screen TVs
