SNES Classic Edition Has Already Been Hacked


If a game is giving you trouble (or if you want to side-load a NES Classic game onto your SNES), you can use a tool called RetroArch to convert a particular game to run. With hakchi 2.20, SNES Classic owners can store up to 200 games on the SNES Classic and play them.

Although there are thousands of SNES Classic Editions on eBay right now, it appears the some of the more enterprising resellers of the bunch are modifying their models to give bidders added incentive to purchase while also filling their own pockets with a lot more coin.

The SNES Classic Edition hit retail only last week, but the hacking community has already managed to crack its firmware open. Downloading Roms and putting them in a hard drive is illegal unless you own the game cartridge. The process involves flashing the SNES Classic's operating system.

It seems like Nintendo doesn't care about modders modifying their Classic systems. After following the instructions the console should be "unlocked", enabling extra games to be installed.

This hack can be credited to a new version of hakchi2, which released on GitHub recently.

The SNES Classic video game console is already loaded with nostalgic hits like Super Mario World and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.

In just a week since launch, the SNES mini has been hacked.

There's 260MB of free space on the SNES Classic, which should be enough room for around 100 games.
