SNES Classic hacked to add more games

The hack is a basic PC program named "HackChi", which enables users to connect the Super NES Classic Edition to a PC and add SNES games.

But the Hackchi2 hacking tool, developed by hacker ClusterM, is a very simple piece of software to use, making it an approachable project for any SNES Mini owner. Even the emulator embedded in the system can play NES games.

It's only been on store shelves for a little over a week, but the SNES Mini has already been fully hacked, letting fearless owners load up their miniature consoles with a suite of additional games.

Hackers have taken just under a week to break through the lock on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System Classic Edition. The software appears easy to install, but users are "recommended to revert your console to stock state first, and use the "Uninstall" feature in the "Kernel" menu".

Once you've hacked your device, you also need ROMs of old games to put on there. The process involves flashing the SNES Classic's operating system. The console may be able to hold up to 63 games, and there are hundreds that have been confirmed to work on unlocked consoles. A Russian hacker found a way to install new games to NES Classic using USB cable. Of course, you can always add a few games now and then cycle them around if you're running out of room. Despite the issues, the software is expected to get extremely popular among gamers.

For Nintendo, this will be frustrating as it could not do much to stop this. Even without the hack, the SNES mini has several games to keep gamers occupied like The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Mario Kart, Super Mario World, and Secret of Mana. But Nintendo has promised to ramp up production to try to ensure that it can fulfill demand in the run-up to the holiday season.
