Nintendo confirms NES Classic Mini has several display modes instant saves

first_imgOne of the problems with trying to play games using a retro console such as a NES, SNES, or Genesis on a modern HD TV is that the games don’t look great. That’s why the XRGB mini has proved so popular as it solves the problem. It’s also why the Retron 5 works so well because it also solves the display issue by default.Thankfully, Nintendo has taken the time to ensure the NES games included with the forthcoming NES Classic Mini all look great on a HD TV. But that’s not all. Julie Gagnon, communications manager at Nintendo of Canada, has given a French-language radio interview where she goes into more detail on the display options.It seems the Classic Mini will be a lot like the Retron 5 in terms of the display options you have available. As well as a standard HD-resolution output, the tiny NES will allow you to simulate the look of the game as you would experience it on a CRT. There will also be a 4:3 mode and a pixel-perfect mode where every pixel is a perfect square. So that’s all 30 games with multiple viewing options available.Gagnon also commented on game saves. There will be permanent save points within each game, but Nintendo has also added instant temporary saves. That means you’ll be able to stop playing at any point and return later without losing progress. The fact they are instant suggests the save may only last as long as the Classic Mini is powered on, where as the permanent saves are, well, permanent.The Nintendo Classic Mini is set to go on sale on November 11 for $59.99 including 30 games and one NES controller. <> 1/20Game Boy 1/20Game Boy Color 1/20Game Boy Advance 1/20Game Boy Advance SP 1/20Game Boy Micro 1/20Nintendo DS 1/20Nintendo DS Lite 1/20Nintendo DSi 1/20Nintendo DSi XL 1/20Nintendo 3DS 1/20Nintendo 3DS XL 1/20Nintendo 2DS 1/20New Nintendo 3DS and New 3DS XL 1/20Nintendo Entertainment System 1/20Super Nintendo Entertainment System 1/20GameCube 1/20Nintendo 64 1/20Wii 1/20Wii U 1/20Nintendo NX?last_img
