The Famicom Mini series was released in 2004 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Famicom release in Japan.
All games have a special transparent box and inside there is a scaled-down copy of the original game released during Famicom times while the cart is coloured in white and red to match the original console colours.
Xevious is a vertical shoot’em up released in 1983 featuring a ship that has two different weapons : a blaster for flying enemies as usual, and a bomb that can be used for destroying enemies on the ground, a feature that will be used for inspiration in many other games to come.
