SNES Classic to include a “rewind” feature

Nintendo revealed today at Gamescom that their upcoming Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition system will include a Rewind feature.

The feature will let 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 though. 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.

The system is also now available for pre-order from many retailers including EB Games. The system retails for $99.99 CAD. It will be available on September 29th.
