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.

However, this not the only classic console from Nintendo which has been hacked to install new games as previously NES Classic Edition was also hacked. A Russian hacker found a way to install new games to NES Classic using USB cable.

In related news, Nintendo considers SNES Classic Edition as form of a virtual console. During a recent investors meeting, Satoshi Yamato was asked if there is a possibility of making Game Boy Advance titles available through retail, to which he replied that Nintendo is planning to make full use of its virtual console titles and added that SNES Classic Edition is a form of a virtual console.

Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition in the U.S.), scheduled to be launched in Japan this October (and September overseas) to be a type of Virtual Console. It would be possible to sell these titles as packaged software or via download cards, but if we were to start selling products like this in the future, I think we would first have to consider whether we can establish that kind of business model, and do our due diligence in finding out if there is sufficient demand for it.
