The Nintendo Classic Mini: Family Computer (Famicom for short) is getting a new golden edition to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Weekly Shonen Jump. This mini console is the Japanese version of the NES Classic Edition. It has the same shape as the original. However, it will be golden and red instead of white and red. It also comes with a different set of games than the original. The Nintendo Classic Mini: Family Computer Weekly Shonen Jump 50th Anniversary Edition is set to launch on July 7th, in Japan for a price tag of 7,980 yen.

A scan from Zaregoto shows a glimpse of what the commemorative golden version of the mini console actually looks like:

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
