Fans of retro gaming were no doubt excited when Nintendo unveiled the NES Classic Edition, a miniature version of the company’s debut home console that comes preloaded with 30 classic titles. As it turns out, that won’t be the only retro console getting a refresh this autumn; Nintendo has announced that Japan will also receive its own miniature retro console, based on the Famicom, this November.

Like its North American counterpart, the Nintendo Classic Mini: Famicom will be small enough to fit in the palm of your hand and will come preloaded with 30 classic Famicom games, though the selection of titles differs slightly from the ones included in the NES Classic. You can watch the full Famicom Mini announcement trailer below.

The Nintendo Classic Mini: Famicom will be launching in Japan on November 10 and will retail for 5,980 yen.
