    For those that didn't get the chance to buy an NES Classic back when it launched in late 2016, Nintendo will be bringing the discontinued NES Classic back for one more run in North America. On June 29, stores will begin carrying the throwback system once more. The NES Classic originally launched in 2016, where shortages plagued customers, and scalpers sold the system at outrageous prices. Nintendo also said that the newer SNES Classic will be sold in stores through the end of this year.

    For those in Japan, Shonen Jump will also have a 50th anniversary Famicom console, which will feature games centered around manga series, such as:

    • Captain Tsubasa
    • Captain Tsubasa 2
    • Dragon Ball: Shenron no Nazo
    • Dragon Ball Z: Kyoushuu! Saiyajin
    • Dragon Ball 3: Gokuden
    • Dragon Quest
    • Famicom Jump
    • Famicom Jump 2: Saikyou no Shinchinin
    • Hokuto no Ken
    • Hokuto no Ken 3
    • Kinnikuman: Kinnikusei Our Soudatususen
    • Tag Team Match: Muscle
    • Saint Seyia: Ougon Densetsu
    • Saint Seiya: Ougon Densetsu Kanketsuhen
    • Ankoku Shinwa: Yamato Takeru Densetsu
    • Destiny of an Emperor
    • Sekiryuuou
    • Rokudenashi Blues
    • Magical Taruruto-kun Fantastic World

    Thank god. I always wanted one, and could never find one at a good price because of scalpers. Now I can get one for a good price, just for it to collect dust when Nintendo Switch online launches! Great plan Nintendo!

    beyond collecting and the nice pads there really isnt a reason to get one of these when you can get an SNES classic and do much of the same with hacks, not to mention turbo buttons and stuff that you cant do because of the lack of buttons on said nice NES pads, but oh well

    Hold on, Dragon quest is a anime? I didn't know that? :wtf:

    Also why would anyone want to play that god awful ULTIMATE MUSCLE GAME!? I have no offense to the manga (Which I never read) or the anime (which I only heard of was in america short time during the time fox 5 had anime on saturday morning) but that game, TAG TEAM ULTIMATE MUSCLE, it's just one awful game. :blink:

    I guess is more of just a celebration, I guess is nice to be reminded how old some of these anime are and how popular they became to get a game on famicom during 1980. I had no idea how many dragonball games was made since it's existence, and they must have made one for like every type of genre of video game possible. Seriously, must have been more games than like Mario, Pac-man or any other game from 1980. :P

    I hate to be that guy but NES games honestly suck. What DOESN'T suck are the SNES games, they're the GOAT
