NES Classic Edition was an instant hit among the Nintendo fans and due to its popularity this retro console was hard to come by and in some cases was available at a price way higher than its actual MSRP.
These retro consoles come with pre-installed games and users are not able to install any other game. However, creative users were able to find a workaround to install other retro titles on NES Classic.
The same was with SNES Classic Edition and for this console too hackers were able to find a workaround to run game on SNES Classic of user’s liking.
These retro consoles were very popular among fans and last month Nintendo revealed that SNES Classic sold over 5 million units.
There are currently no plans to bring classic games together under the Virtual Console banner as has been done on other Nintendo systems. There are a variety of ways in which classic games from Nintendo and other publishers are made available on Nintendo Switch, such as through Nintendo Entertainment System.
