SNES Classic Hackers Add Support for New Features and Hundreds of Games

It has not been long since SNES Mini launched and those who managed to grab one have been enjoying retro games, however, many of you might be bored of 21 pre-installed games and just so happens SNES Mini has been hacked to install new games.

Part of Nintendo's standing Classic Edition strategy is to scale down the dimensions of the original system, which may seem odd to do with the already-portable Game Boy. Nintendo hid a message in SNES classic's code.

• Individual profiles for different consoles, so you can use the same hakchi2 for both NES, SNES, Famicom and Super Famicom. Online listings for the SNES Classic are bound to sell out nearly immediately, so don't count on getting one though those channels.

Hacking the SNES Classic Mini, much like it did for the NES Classic Mini, means that you're able to load your own custom ROMs onto the machine and play them without issue. The console comes with Super Mario World, Super Mario Kart, The Legend Of Zelda a Link to the Past, Super Metroid, Donkey Kong Country, Star Fox 2, and more. The SNES Classic has nine games less than the NES Classic, and it costs $20 more.

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

After that, GameStop stores in the U.S. should start receiving weekly shipments of the coveted console through the remainder of 2017. The NES classic cost $59.99, and it came with 30 games.

The Russian hacker ClusterM has updated his hakchi2 mod to include support for the SNES Classic, including automatic ROM conversion for files that aren't already in the SNES Classic's default format (the author recommends users with incompatible games check out the RetroArch mod for those titles).
