Japanese avid gamers and manga aficionados and each mixture thereof will get a deal with this summer time with the discharge of a NES Classic Edition loaded with video games from the pages of Weekly Jump. The beloved manga magazine is celebrating its 50th anniversary and this solid gold Famicom is a part of the festivities.
There’s mainly no likelihood this Jump-themed NES will get a launch within the US — first as a result of hardly any Americans may have learn any of those manga (with a pair exceptions) and second as a result of even fewer may have performed the Famicom video games related to them.
That mentioned, this nurtures the hope inside me that we’ll in some unspecified time in the future see different themed NES Classics; the unique has, after all, a implausible assortment — however there are dozens extra video games I’d have cherished to see on there.
You can hack the factor fairly simply and put half the whole NES library on it, however Nintendo’s official variations may have been examined and maybe even tweaked to verify they run completely (although admittedly emulation issues aren’t frequent for NES video games).
More importantly it’s attainable these hypothetical themed consoles might include new equipment that I desperately want, like a NES Advantage, Zapper (undecided how it could work), or NES Max. Perhaps even a Power Glove?
In the meantime, at the least in case you missed the prospect to purchase one the primary time round, you may seize one come the tip of June.
