Super Nintendo Classic Mini has a great rewind feature

If you're looking to buy an SNES Classic Edition, good luck, because considering how poorly this pre-order period went, you're probably going to need either a lot of time or a lot of money to get one. You're also free to choose from a variety of frames to fill in the surrounding areas of the screen.

The SNES Classic delivers on that front. The biggest innovation is a new rewind feature that lets you dial back the many mistakes you'll be making when playing the SNES Classic's challenging old-school titles. At any point you can jump back in and continue to retry certain sections or pick up something you missed. Nintendo is also integrating a rewind feature. Yep, over two decades after its release was first planned Star Fox 2 has finally seen the light of day. Gamers who played SNES games as a kid on the original SNES may scoff at this, but these games can be hard, and harder than you remember.

Nintendo gave them hope when they hinted in a statement that SNES Classic "would be made available for pre-order by various retailers in late August". As it turns out, many people are in the market for miniature game consoles loaded with some of their favorite games from times past. Last year, the NES Classic Edition took the world by storm. The console doesn't come out until September 29, yet both Amazon and Best Buy are already sold out of pre-orders. But then no one's forcing you to use it. SNES-era games wore their arcade influences on their sleeves, which means they nearly revel in killing players. While the NES Classic was only supposed to be a limited edition thing despite selling over a million units, the SNES Classic will be resupplied much more regularly, according to Nintendo.
