The SNES Classic Edition will record gameplay, have fast forward and rewind capabilities

Pre-orders for Nintendo's SNES Classic Edition started this morning and while there is still a month to go before its retail release, it appears that it will arrive with some new features.

For starters, players will be able to choose different frames that will be able to fill in the screen surrounding the game. While some of the frames are static, some will be animated, shifting colors subtly during gameplay. If you want to just keep it plain and simple, the black border will still be an option. There is also something called My Game Play Demo that will show off your previous gaming sessions when the console is idle, acting like a screensaver of sorts. This isn't the biggest of deals, but it is interesting to know that the console is capable of recording gameplay.

Last, but not least, is the introduction of Rewind. Rewind will allow players to scrub through a couple minutes of a previous gaming session and resume exactly where they'd like. This can't be implemented from the controller and players will need to hit the reset button in order to create a suspend point. When going back to the game, you'll be able to select from up to four of these points and scrub through gameplay from a couple minutes prior to the reset, choosing where you'd like to resume. This will be a neat feature that should prevent a lot of frustration when it comes to some of the harder games.

The SNES Classic Edition will arrive in stores on September 29 for $79.99 in the US. Those hoping to secure one will want to either try signing up for inventory tracking site or head to the store on the day of release.
