In an interview with Julie Gagnon of Nintendo of Canada, a number of new details about the NES Classic were confirmed including CRT Mode and Pixel Perfect Mode.


Check out the translated parts of the interview below


“Everyone who has played before, who maybe today wants to play with their children; everyone who wants to beat the bad guy, but they couldn’t back then; all of the new generations who love Mario today and want to understand how he was at the beginning, I really think this can bring everyone together.”

“It’s also in the spirit where retro is very present, and finally Nintendo offers it in a formula that I think is very accessible for everyone.”

“What is interesting is that we can play through HDMI, but there will be different modes of how we will see the screen – a mode simulating the retro aspect of our old CRT screens, there will be a mode which can be at the resolution of the modern screens in 4:3 format, and a pixel perfect mode which will display each pixel as a square, so people can have fun with this too.”

“Yes, there will be permanent save points and instant temporary saves to be able to resume and that’s for every single of the 30 games, so we don’t have to worry if we don’t have a password, or restart right at the beginning…”

This is really great news and shows Nintendo is committed to preserving classic gaming as it was originally. Unlike other retro consoles, this one seems to be going all out. I personally cannot wait for it.
