One of the big things which was took away from the recent Nintendo Direct presentation is that Super Nintendo games are now playable on the New Nintendo 3DS. The problem is they’re only playable on the new system and not previous Nintendo 3DS models. Nintendo of America has provided an explanation regarding why this is to Game Informer. Here’s what they told the publication.
“As previously announced, New Nintendo 3DS has an improved CPU, which enables Super NES games to run on the system with quality results,” Game Informer was told by a Nintendo representative. “The Super NES games also include Perfect-Pixel mode, which allows players to see their games in their original TV resolution and aspect resolution.”
