PROS:
- Nice looking
- Easily portable.
- Built in Screen makes it so you can play it anywhere.
- Games look great on the small screen!
- 40 included games is a good value

CONS:
- non clicky thumbsticks - hard to do?! Ok… You did it before…
- 720P output - kinda blurry & disappointing on an HDTV especially when compared to the sharpness of the NES/SNES mini
- Smoothing option for video…but doesn’t help
- No battery?! Why?
- No wall adapter for USB-C cable? Why?

Really? There's no pixel-perfect emulation without a filter??? That's a horrible decision! Some very good points in that video (changed button placement? why?). For me, the biggest problem is that most of the games included (the selection is EXCELLENT, I might add, with the possible exception of "Viewpoint" missing) are fighting games, and you can't play the mini in multiplayer without plugging it in and buying at least one gamepad. Unfortunately, a lot of other platforms do that already, and they do it better.

By the way: You didn't mention the games and the differences between the international and Japanese version. I found this list on Nintendolife.com, and I have to say, I really prefer the international lineup:

Aggressors of Dark Kombat is the most 90s title ever.

Testament didn't really do the "K-for-C" swap though, so I'd say its more like a Nasty Savage b-side...

The international version is a great deal, the other one looks like they didn't feel like trying....

Missing Magician Lord AND Crossed swords? Someone needs to be tar and feathered...
