NES Classic Edition is More Classic Than You Think

NES Classic Edition

The NES Classic Edition, an updated and miniaturized version of the Nintendo Entertainment System, is set to launch Nov. 11 and Nintendo is revealing more details about the console.

A new trailer unveiled the NES Classic Edition, which plugs into your TV using HDMI, will have retro filters to make the system’s 30 original NES games look more like they did on 1980s television sets.

All games will be playable in three different viewing modes, including a modern-looking 4:3 mode and a Pixel Perfect mode that makes every pixel perfectly square. The CRT filter adds a scan-line effect to make you feel like you’re playing on an original NES. The 1980s filter can be seen in action in the trailer below.

Adding a more modern feature, the system will allow players to save their games. The console allows for up to four “suspend points” for each of its games, which can be used to save your spot in each title. Pressing the reset button on the console will allow players to use suspend points and switch between games.

While the save feature is a smart way to modernize the console, it appears that the controllers have stuck to the limits of the past. Like their original forefathers, the recreations of the NES controllers are corded, and the cord is not very long.

There is no ability to switch games strictly by using the controller, so users will have to rely on the reset button. Between this and the corded controller, it seems Nintendo could have done better at giving retro players more current features.

The NES Classic Edition will be priced at $60.
