SNES Classic Edition Display Frames - Every Border and Filter

We give you a look at every colorful display frame you can choose to play with. Plus image filters.

The SNES Classic Edition, releasing on September 29, 2017, is set to be a treat for retro game fans. One of the things you might not realise is that SNES games rendered at a resolution far lower than what we’re used to in modern games. They also didn’t display in a widescreen image we have now. In this SNES Classic Edition Display Frames guide, we’ll show you all the colorful frames you can choose from, plus point out the image filter options.

  • 4:3 - This option gives a classic 4:3 image.
  • Pixel Perfect - This option intends to accurately represent the games without stretching the image.

Managing Editor

Tom started life on a circus in Australia before his family moved to the UK. His love of gaming started soon after, which essentially meant he bought every video game magazine available and worked numerous part-time jobs as a child in order to afford costly N64 games. He created UK site VideoGamer.com, of which he was the Editor for over a decade. He now doesn't like circuses.
