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:
