SNES Classic Has Already Been Hacked To Play Additional Games

SNES mini teardown confirms recycled NES mini tech

No, this isn't one of those hacks that steals credit cards and personal identities, this one just lets you add more games and wallpapers to the system.

It seems like Nintendo doesn't care about modders modifying their Classic systems. This means that users will no longer be restricted to the game's that come pre-loaded on the system.

Avdyukhin's update to the original hakchi works on the SNES Classic Mini, miniature NES, Famicom, and Super Famicom devices, and is a relatively straightforward unpacking job. A community devoted to SNES Classic modifications has already started up on Reddit. Aside from adding more games to the unit, players can even do things like adding a reset button to their controller.

Nintendo promised months ago that it would build more of the SNES Classic Edition consoles that it did of the hugely successful NES Classic Edition past year. "So, please keep this place tidied up and don't break everything!" The SNES Classic has nine games less than the NES Classic, and it costs $20 more. Games like "Zombies Ate My Neighbors" are beloved, yet they're sadly missing from the Super NES Classic Edition.

It was recently announced that a Mini Commodore 64 is releasing next year.

The source also notes that ThinkGeek will have standalone units in the stores as of today and online as of tomorrow.

The trademark doesn't mention the term 'Game Boy Classic, ' but it doesn't need to.

The SNES Classic Edition comes packed with 21 memorable games from that area, including the never-officially-released StarFox 2.
