The Mini-NES Makes Classic Games Look Better Than Virtual Console

The head-to-head match-up, put together by GameXplain, compares video capture from three games: Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario Bros. 3, and Kirby Adventure. Based on the evidence presented, the Mini-NES seems to render the games at higher quality as well as more accurately, with options to output the game in 4:3 ratio or Pixel Perfect, a mode that shows the games as they would have appeared on PCs while in development.

As you can see, the Mini-NES output (left) is much sharper and more vibrant than the Wii U virtual console version (right). The Mini-NES also appears to have much better sound quality as well.

This comes on-top of news yesterday, both good and bad, about some of the Mini-NES's other features, including the terribly short cords that the controllers come with. You can watch the full video comparison below.


    Does it carry over that weird flickering issue where it can only show oh-so-many sprites at once?

    This guy's voice is too much! I love it!
