Japanese players 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 Leap. The beloved manga magazine is celebrating its 50th anniversary and this solid gold Famicom is a part of the festivities.
There’s principally no likelihood this Leap-themed NES will get a launch within the US — first as a result of hardly any People can have learn any of those manga (with a pair exceptions) and second as a result of even fewer can have performed the Famicom video games related to them.
That mentioned, this nurtures the hope inside me that we are going to sooner or later see different themed NES Classics; the unique has, after all, a improbable assortment — however there are dozens extra video games I might have liked to see on there.
You possibly can hack the factor fairly simply and put half the whole NES library on it, however Nintendo’s official variations can have been examined and even perhaps tweaked to verify they run completely (although admittedly emulation issues aren’t widespread for NES video games).
Extra importantly it’s potential these hypothetical themed consoles could include new equipment that I desperately want, like a NES Benefit, Zapper (undecided how it could work), or NES Max. Maybe even a Energy Glove?
Within the meantime, not less than in case you missed the possibility to purchase one the primary time round, you possibly can seize one come the tip of June.
