SNES Classic hacked to feature over 200 games

SNES Classic hacked to feature over 200 games

Hacking your SNES Classic with this tool makes it possible to natively run about 75 percent of games just by side-loading them, according to the creator.

Once you've hacked your device, you also need ROMs of old games to put on there.

All hackers had to do to get into the SNES Classic was update the tool they used to hack the NES Classic, HackChi, and connect the SNES Classic to a PC.

In case you're wondering, Hakchi can add games from other consoles-in that they'll display in the menu-but the emulator in the SNES Classic won't know what to do with them and kick you back to the menu nearly immediately.

A First Look At Jurassic World Evolution
Jurassic World Evolution is a park-building experience along the lines of games like Cities: Skylines. That doesn't stop the developer from teasing fans well ahead of time.

Have you grabbed a SNES Mini yet or are you stalking online retailers hoping for it to appear? The console may be able to hold up to 63 games, and there are hundreds that have been confirmed to work on unlocked consoles.

Before using the software, a user must know that it is not without risk, and the process may even brick the console. Given that the SNES Classic Edition has most of the same off-the-shelf parts as its predecessor, it was only a matter of time before an SNES-friendly version came along.

I don't think anyone should feel that the 21 games already on there aren't enough-Super Mario World, Super Metroid, A Link to the Past, Secret of Mana, for example, are the cream of the crop when it comes to the wonderful library of SNES games.

The hakchi2 surely is good news for gamers, but the bad news is that the console is facing short supply, and is sold out everywhere.
