New Super NES Classic Trailer Reveals “Rewind” Feature

Nintendo has shared a new trailer for the Super NES Classic.

Featured above, the new trailer introduces a new “rewind” feature coming with the throwback console, enabling players to literally rewind their current playthrough and have another chance. This can naturally be handy if you missed an item, lost too much health, and so on.

This new feature will vary depending on the kind of game. Role-playing games like Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars will let you go back several minutes, while titles like Super Mario World lets you go back around 40 seconds of game time.

It’s also worth mentioning the hardware has optional visual frames that you can turn on for each game, to fill in the black space on high-definition displays.

The Super NES Classic Edition is launching on September 29th for $79.99.

    I heard they went up for preorder for a few seconds last night at 2am. And I guess all 20 of them sold out immediately. Why are they making this so difficult to get?

  • Batata Potato Patate

    21 games? Why not 30?

  • RichardGristle

    Can I rewind time to when Nintendo wasn’t shit?

  • Mechonis

    I actually was up when preorders were and could have preordered but nah I don’t have the money or time for this shit

    My only guess is they get off of the feeling that something they make has a forced inflated value in the market.

    There were preorders? If this is how the SNES classic is gonna be, I’m out. I’m buying it for $80 when it’s already released or I never will.

    As if we needed more confirmation it was an emulator box and not a hardware clone.

  • braneman

    I’m certain this is relevant to the five scalpers who actually open one of these up.

  • OzymandiasAeonis

    Was that even a possibility? A decent amount of the games included use various

    enhancement chips which seems like a mess to handle with a hardware clone, also pointless for them to put that much into R&D into something they’re treating the same way Mcdonalds treats the McRib.

    Ah yes, where’s Magus when you need him?

    The past is dead. It was all just a dream…

    Half of these games received improved versions years ago.

    It’s a shame I can’t rewind what I can’t buy.

    Glad dickhead scalpers can rewind back to their wild profits with the NES classic. Just gonna keep using Snes9x and tell Nintendo to suck it
