The Super Nintendo Classic is set to release next month and if you’re lucky enough to get a hold of one of these popular throwback consoles, you can expect some pretty exciting features. Nintendo revealed today the SNES Classic will include what they are calling a replay system. Players will be able to pause a game, rewind up to a certain point, and replay from that point in which you backed up to. It has been confirmed that Super Mario World will allow you to rewind up to around 40 seconds while other games like Super Mario RPG will allow several minutes. This is amazing for situation where you may have wanted to do something different, but do not want to replay the entire level over.
Another cool addition to the SNES will be the different display options that will be available to choose from. These include a classic CRT filter, a 4:3 aspect ratio display, and a pixel-free mode. Given these games were all released before the introduction of widescreen ratios, there will be a number of frames to choose from. This will allow you to fill in those areas around the screen with a “cooler” look as opposed to default black areas.
The Super Nintendo Classic releases on September 29th for a retail price of $79.99. Pre-orders have already begun for the console and have been selling out at a number of retail stores. More pre-orders are said to be made available and are expected to go quick.
