There's plenty of buzz right now around the The Super NES Classic Edition (NA) / The Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System (PAL), as plenty scramble to secure pre-orders and stock ahead of the September release. That's prompted a surge in interest around the original hardware, of course.
Our chums at Digital Foundry have produced an interesting video focused on the technology of the SNES, taking us back to the time when a game like Star Fox could run at 15fps but no-one cared, because games of that kind were mind blowing at the time. The video not only talks through the technology of the original system, but also addresses some of the considerations of the SNES Mini, for example the fact that Nintendo is officially emulating Super FX games for the first time.
Check it out below.
Ah, the nostalgia!
