Product Description: SNES Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System (Europe), Not Region Locked
Nintendo’s follow-up console to the legendary Nintendo Entertainment System, returns in a new petite form as the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System. Launched in Europe in 1992, the Super Nintendo introduced what many consider some of the greatest video games of all time – classics such as Super Mario World, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Mario Kart, Super Metroid and F-ZERO.
The Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System contains 21 pre-installed classic games, can easily be plugged into any high-definition TV using the included HDMI cable. For the first time, players who pick up the system can enjoy the intergalactic adventure Star Fox 2, the sequel to the original Star Fox (originally titled Starwing upon release in Europe) game that was created during the Super Nintendo era but never released … anywhere!
The SNES classic mini has the same look and feel of the original system – only smaller – and comes pre-loaded with 21 games: Contra III: The Alien Wars Donkey Kong Country; · EarthBound; Final Fantasy III; F-ZERO; Kirby Super Star; Kirby’s Dream Course; The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past; Mega Man X; Secret of Mana; Star Fox; Star Fox 2; Street Fighter II Turbo Hyper Fighting; Super Castlevania IV Super Ghouls ’n Ghosts; Super Mario Kart; Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars; Super Mario World; Super Metroid; Super Punch-Out!!; Yoshi’s Island.
All of these games would be considered classics by anyone’s standards, and some of them in particular – Secret of Mana, Final Fantasy III, EarthBound and Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars – are massive role-playing games that can take dozens of hours to complete. Even for super fans who have playedall of these games multiple times, the inclusion of the never-before-released Star Fox 2 will offer them something entirely new to enjoy (players must prove their skill by completing the first level of the original Star Fox before Star Fox 2 is unlocked to play).
Performance and Features of SNES Classic Mini
– Just like the NES Classic Edition, you can save progress for any game at any point by tapping the reset button and storing the game state in one of four “Suspend Point” slots. But the Super NES Classic Edition also supports the in-game save features originally included in 15 of the included games. This means things like game progress, unlocked levels, high scores, etc. can be stored, even if you don’t start from an existing Suspend Point.
– The Super NES Classic Edition sports a “rewind” feature that lets you revert a game to the state it was in a few seconds before. The feature isn’t exactly easy to use, though. First, you have to hit reset on the system itself to go to the system menu, then tap down to the Suspend Point and tap X to enter a rewind menu. you can also choose to rewind from previously saved Suspend Points.
– System’s included “CRT filter,” which tries to replicate the lower resolution and scanlines of an old tube TV, is much more subtle than it was on the NES Classic Edition. Much less “fuzz” blurs the square edges of the individual pixels.
– Even though the Super NES Classic Edition is rated for five watts, it only draws 2.3W from the provided USB adapter. The USB Micro power cord can be plugged in to any sufficiently powerful source, including a laptop or the USB power outputs on many modern TVs.
– The SNES classic mini Edition controllers are backward compatible with the NES Classic Edition, which is convenient if you never invested in a second controller for the previous system.
– It takes about seven seconds after turning the system on for the menu to appear on screen. After turning the system off, the screen displays a “Shutting Down” message for about three seconds before going black.
How Does SNES classic mini Work
Following on from the winning formula of its retro sibling, the Nintendo Classic Mini SNES will be able to plug straight into your TV via a HDMI cable. In terms of controllers, you don’t have to worry – there will be 2 wired Super NES ones included, as well as a USB charging cable, which is always handy. Here’s hoping they fix the annoyingly short cables that were on the NES Mini – it would be easy to rectify a small but very irritating problem.
