SNES Classic Mini Overview Videos

SNES Classic Mini Overview Videos on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Nintendo has posted videos showing how the Super NES Mini works in more depth.

The Super Famicom edition is launching on October 5 in Japan for 7,980 yen, and features 21 games. The Super NES Mini version launches in the West on September 29.

Notable from the video is a rewind feature that allows players to go back in time to correct their mistakes, such as if you die in a Mario game, saving people from having to reload their save.


 

Check out the UK and US videos below.

Utterly baffled at no home/menu button on the controller again. Rewind feature is great, but the UI again looks to be confusing, and you'll still need to reach for the system every time you want to rewind. Gonna have to keep using that Wii Pro pad I guess, where the home button functions.

I did not know that the Home button worked on that! Well, that is going to be my preferred controller of choice for sure now!

It's a pisstake because they programmed the function into the button on a pad not even bundled with the system, yet could not be fucked to add a single button to the SNES pad itself. This coupled with the way they have handled the preorders in the US is Nintendo at its absolute incompetent dumbass best.

I guess they are going for a nostalgic play with the controller then. Although they could have at least done a button combo of some sort (like Fire Emblem does) for a quick reset.

I am glad they are using the same 'Wiimote style' ports for the controllers as well, that means my controller extension cables I had to buy for the NES classic have double the use now....

I wonder why Nintendo do it, in a way I understand that they probably didn't anticipate the NES Classic's demand but to not recognise that there was going to be an incredible demand for this is a mis-step. With that said I have 3 on pre-order...so I didn't find it difficult to get one.

It shows that Shibata has got his stuff together, no idea what Reggie/Bowser are doing with NoA releases though. They seem to be getting the shorter end of the stick in recent years, from localisations to Special Editions. 

Nintendo JP still hasn't put their preorders up and won't do so until mid-Sept!

It's not a worthwhile sacrifice in the slightest. I remember macroing save and load state onto the L2 and R2 buttons when emulating SNES games on PC, and it made playing them so good for instant saving/loading states.

You will quickly see how crazy this setup is of having to get up and hit the reset button on the SNES Mini just to save or rewind the game every time. Unless you have the system right next to you with either extended cables from the back of the TV or you sitting right in front of the TV, it's a ridiculous setup only Nintendo could think is perfectly fine.

Very strange how different the preorder situation has been for Europe. Indeed, I've got two orders down (me and brother) at different retailers, but I can't believe the way they've been handling this in general outside of Europe. Feel so sorry for people in NA.

*emojis don't seem to work on the site anymore...if I post with one it doesn't post my post...(and deletes it!)

(Laughy face) - I overlooked how convoluted the rewind feature is. I thought it looked a little long-winded in the video they showed. With that said from a personal standpoint this doesn't phase me too much as I doubt I'd be using it all to often, with the exception of DKC and Contra (i guess I can just use the Pro controller for that) but it does show Nintendo's naivety on issues like this. 

Rare Replay and Disney Afternoon Collection, F1 games,  have made a rewind feature look much easier to implement.  

Well, I got one at GAME in the UK to send to my home address and then two in Australia, where the pre-orders were up for quite a while. Like you though these aren't all for myself, but the fact I had to pre-order for other people knowing they'd miss out otherwise showcases how shocking Nintendo are when it comes to simple supply/demand.  

That's the thing - my bro is totally casual when it comes to gaming, but when he found out about the NES Mini, the first thing he said was if they are doing a SNES one. The way Nintendo works, I don't think he would even have known a SNES one was even coming out if it wasn't for me. He would have either expected to just pick one up off the shelf by the time he did know about it and they were gone forever, or never hear about it at all and miss out either way. So I knew I just had to order one for him when at first opportunity.

And it's this handling and thought process that baffles me, because there would be so many others that grew up on the SNES that would be all over this thing, yet not only is it a limited batch, it's not being communicated well and the ordering situation is shocking. All things considered, we've been lucky in Europe, but even that is saying something.

I tried (and failed) to preorder one here in the US of A. 
It's absolutely insane. Just a short while ago, Target opened preorders. They sold out in literally one minute. Toys R' Us isn't doing preorders at all. It's expected to be a bloodbath. Gamestop had maybe 10 or so units per store.

The best chance I had of getting one was when Amazon was doing preorders. It happened pretty much out of the blue at around 1:30 or so A.M. It took a whopping 20 minutes to sell out. I was either asleep or playing a game at the time. 

I guess it's a case of who wants it more. For special items like this I set many alerts and recurring alarms on my phone to wake me up at night. I did this for the Fire Emblem Fates SE, Metroid Samus Returns SE and SNES Classic. It's not ideal or the best way to sell a product but I get what I want because I want it more!

Maybe that's the case in Europe Flynnie, but sounds like people did that and still can't get one in the US. Like Gabriel said, if it sells out in 1 minute, what can you do? Utter sham.

That's utterly true, the instantaneous sell out in the US is problematic. I don't believe the supply issues on Nintendo's side one bit. Its infuriating to me that they are purposefully holding back sales on the Switch, amiibo and SNES Classic. With that said it does make me buy things immediately as oppose to waiting for a price drop. (Not that that really happens often with Nintendo stuff). 

I probably wouldn't have got the amiibo I have if they weren't as 'rare' as I perceive them to be. 

From a selfish perspective though Nintendo's dick-moves recently haven't really effected me, but I do think their practices are anti-consumer!
