The Super NES Classic Edition is about to hit shelves in a few days. With the SNES Mini and its software are practically the same to the NES Mini, the hacking community already knows how to program some games on it.
A user on Reddit states that “After playing a few games, I wanted to see how it would behave when thrown at Hakchi2. To my surprise (though I guess I shouldn’t have been given the hardware similarities), it CAN have its kernel dumped and re-written with it with the current version.”
Users are now hard at work to extract and share the SNES Classic hardware files online so that other modders can configure the Hakchi2 tool for widespread use. Once Hakchi2 is fully functional with the mini SNES, it will enable folks to write data onto the system. That means they can program small but important fixes and adding classics onto the system for an ultimate all in one SNES mini (let’s add Chrono Trigger in there!).
Super NES Classic Edition will be out on September 29 in NA/EU. To those who want to pre-order, you can check our article on where to pre-order the SNES mini.
