Nintendo just continue to dominate the headlines with their recent(ish) release of Pokémon GO, and their announcement of the mini NES console shortly thereafter.

In a recent interview with La Terrasse ENERGIE, Nintendo of Canada communications manager Julie Gagnon said that the mini NES will include several new display options: the pixel perfect option (displays each pixel as a square), a mode that'll simulate retro CRT TV look, and an option to display the games in a 4:3 ratio. See below for a quick look at CRT retro look in action:



Perhaps, the most interesting feature revealed by Gagnon is that all 30 of the Mini NES games will include permanent save points, and instant temporary saves which allows players to jump right back into their game without needing a password.



The Mini NES is set to hit stores November 11, 2016.

In April, Nintendo at last gave us confirmation that they will be releasing the NX in 2017, with the debut of the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild trailer. A report from MCV suggest that Nintendo's ensuring they kick things off with the NX with a boom; and that they're planning on Mario and Pokémon titles iin addition to the new Legend of Zelda game.



Unfortunately we don't know any of the finer details for the Mario and Pokémon titles, but exciting news nonetheless!

Pokémon Sun and Moon will also introduce the 'styles' feature -- which is dependent upon which parts of the island you encounter a given Pokémon on:

daftmike, an avid gamer, built his own version of a mini NES using a 3D printer, a Raspberry Pi mini computer, and some NFC chips; and it all comes complete with a fully functional cartridge slot. It somehow gets better though...using an app on his phone he can reprogram each cartridge on the fly.

This dude's comment on the original video perfectly sums up how I'm feeling about all this right now:
