The SNES Classic Mini is getting a gameplay rewind feature.
Nintendo has revealed that the upcoming Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System – or Super Nintendo Entertainment System Classic Edition, as it’s called in North America – will include a gameplay rewind feature.
It’s a bit like Forza, basically. If you want to attempt a section of gameplay again, or have missed an important item, you can have another go by rewinding from one of each game’s four suspend points.
Nintendo says the amount of gameplay you can rewind time is dependant on the game. Action focused titles like Super Mario World can be rewound for about 40 seconds, while RPGs, such as Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, can be rewound a number of minutes.
Also revealed today are some new optional visual frames that can be wrapped round each game. You can see all of these features, plus get a close look at the console itself, in this new trailer.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
