 The **AV Famicom** was released on December 1, 1993. It featured a composite output and was released outside of Japan as the '''​NES-101'''​. ​  This design update addressed the major drawback of the original Famicom, by having controller ports, which were identical to those on the NES. It also featured an ergonomic “dogbone” shaped controller, which was very similar to their then-current console, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. ​ It didn't have support for the microphone on the second controller as in the original Famicom, however. ​ \\ The **AV Famicom** was released on December 1, 1993.
