Video: SNES Mode 7

To celebrate the Super Nintendo's 25th Anniversary in North America, certified Retronaut Jeremy Parish gives himself a break from 8-bit tech to explore the wonders of Nintendo's 16-bit wonder console. Launching a new series affectionately titled "Mode Seven", Jeremy aims to provide a chronological survey of U.S. releases for Super NES, sequenced according to Nintendo's official launch dates.

This first episode, fittingly, dives into a game built entirely around this series' namesake: F-Zero, the futuristic racing game designed as a showcase for the Super NES Mode 7 feature.

Even if you think you know everything there is to know about F-Zero, the video is well worth a watch as Mr Parish really digs in to what made the Super Nintendo's Mode 7 so impressive at the time.
