Can In-Game Save Features Be Used?

Information:

  • All pre-loaded games included on the Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System console and Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System console feature four suspend point slots where you can save your game progress.

  • In addition to this, the games that included in-game save options on the original Nintendo Entertainment System and Super Nintendo Entertainment System consoles will also have this same functionality on the Nintendo Classic Mini consoles.

  • On the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System console, these software titles are marked with an icon of a cartridge and a pencil. The games are:

  • Excitebike
  • The Legend of Zelda
  • Kirby's Adventure
  • Zelda II - The Adventure of Link
  • StarTropics
  • FINAL FANTASY

Important:

Although the in-game save options are available for the games listed above, you will still need to save your progress to a suspend point. Otherwise, if you start your game from a suspend point, the in-game save data will be overwritten by the new progress and cannot be recovered.
