The Super NES Classic Edition is shaping up to be a difficult item to preorder. Most sites and stores have already put up and sold out their quantities. It’s not hard to see why with an amazing slate of games and a strong nostalgic urge to own a piece of history. Of course, even though Nintendo has promised to produce more units, they’re getting snapped up just as quick (if not quicker) than the NES Classic did last year. Here’s hoping those really yearning for one can snag one at or near launch (September 29).
Nintendo also revealed that the upcoming Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition system includes a Rewind feature that lets players rewind their gameplay to retry tricky sections, pick up missed items or simply run through an area again to see if anything was missed. The rewind time depends on the kind of game: Players can go back a few minutes in role-playing games such as Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, while action titles such as Super Mario World offer around 40 seconds, ideal for re-trying short segments of gameplay. The system also comes with optional frames that can be wrapped around the on-screen display for each game.
