Nintendo today released new details of the NES Classic Edition, the new miniature version of the classic NES to be released in November. The console, will give players the option to choose from three different types of screens: traditional 4:3; a CRT mode so that give’s TV appearance of old tube; and Pixel Perfect that makes the screen becomes a perfect square.
According to Nintendo this provides the “most perfect representation of how the games were when they were originally created”. In addition to the different viewing modes, the console will offer a digital manual for each game. A QR code will appear on the screen and players can scan it with a cell phone and see the manual. Another interesting point is that each game will feature 4 spaces to save, that it works in the form as emulators do at present.
Using buttons on the console itself, players can “carve” the game state at that point and return to it as often as they wish. The new NES was announced in July and will feature 30 classic games, coming on November 11 for $60. The library includes Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Donkey Kong, Pac-Man, Metroid and more. Take the opportunity to check out a new trailer also below.
