  • Rewind: This new feature lets players rewind the game a minute or more based on the game’s last suspend point. Each game has the ability to save up to four suspend points.
  • Demo: The new demo mode will replay footage from the saved ‘suspend points’ by the user instead of using the built-in demos for the game.
  • New frames: Users will now have the ability to customise the frames of their games. Some of the times, the frames change color based on the active game.
  • Controller Compatibility: The Super NES Classic edition console is compatible with Classic Controller and Classic Controller Pro.
