Recently, few hackers managed to hack the NES Classic Edition simply to add support for many Nintendo Entertainment System games that are not featured in the plug-and-play console’s default lineup.
Hackers Successfully Hacked NES Classic Edition
It was in July that Nintendo announced the new NES Mini Classic. The console was only launched in November and, as main limitations, highlight that it is not possible to install new games or be able to connect to the Internet.
But according to a video now published, the Nintendo console has been unlocked, and it is now possible to install new games.
The NES Mini Classic comes preloaded with 30 classic games. According to several reports, the quality of emulation is excellent, but the big problem itself is not being able to install new games. However, according to information published in Reddit, a group of Russian and Japanese hackers were finally able to unlock the console, and it is now possible to install new ones (30 in total).
The unlocking process is complex and involves a Famicom Mini (Japanese console that has the same motherboard as the NES) and a serial-to-USB cable to upload the games.
In addition to the 30 games that come with the NES Classic Mini, there are now 30 new titles:-
