Pre-order horror stories aside, the SNES Classic Edition looks like a neat little machine (though I’ll keep my opinions about Nintendo’s moves to myself). Sold out at retailers world-wide, the mini console promises an old-school experience designed for young and old alike. Featuring games like Final Fantasy III, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Metroid, and the never-released StarFox 2, many gamers were VERY keen to get their hands on the console.
Not only does the Super NES Classic provide 21 games pre-loaded onto the console as well as HDMI support and two controllers, but there is a also a bevy of new features to make your gaming life easier. Ever muck up a jump near the end of a level in Mario and have to restart all over again? You’d be lying if you said “no”. Nintendo has you covered though, with the ability to rewind gameplay. There’s also Suspend Points allowing you to save your game (in case your mum yells at you to get your butt to the table for dinner), the ability to choose frames for the sides of the game screen so you have something pretty to look at with your widescreen TV, and Super FX… whatever that is.
So, if you managed to pre-order a SNES Classic… feel like giving it to me? Check out more information on the SNES Classic here.
