The Super Nintendo Entertainment System released in 1991, and this trailer released by Nintendo on Tuesday for its US version of the Super NES Classic looks like something straight out of the 90’s, which is FAR cooler than the rather tame trailer released for the (better looking) version we’ll be getting on this side of the world – scroll down to see that.
Smoke effects and factory-like lighting surround the new retro system, freshly constructed from a machine after it ate several Super Nintendo cartridges.
The trailer highlights all the major bells and whistles of the console, such as the inclusion of over 20 games (like Super Mario World, The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past and the previously unreleased Star Fox 2), a rewind function for when you need to quickly replay a section along with a Suspend Point feature that lets you save and pick up a game anywhere you want.
The system will release on September 30 in New Zealand for 139.99 of your hard earned NZ dollars – if you can grab one that is. Pre-ordering the system will likely be a challenge, some stores have already sold out on pre-orders, but as of now Noel Leeming, The Warehouse and EB Games, are still accepting orders.
Last year’s NES Classic was nearly impossible to find. Despite its popularity and tendency to immediately sellout, Nintendo discontinued sales of it in April. And just for the hell of it, here’s the NES Classic trailer.
