Hackers have taken just under a week to break through the lock on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System Classic Edition. While the tiny system has a great selection of games, everyone has a few titles that they wish were available on the system. Like the NES Classic, hacks have provided a way to add those games to your system library.
One poster on NeoGAF has laid out a series of instructions for hacking your SNES Classic. It involves attaching your SNES Classic to a PC via USB, and then using a utility called Hakchi 2. The current release is version 2.20 and is available on this GitHub account.
Hakchi is actually the exact same tool use to open up the NES Classic. In fact, once a teardown revealed that the SNES Classic and NES Classic used the same hardware, hackers had a good idea where to start opening up the system.
It's worth noting that this is a hack. You're essentially embarking on this brave journey alone and if anything goes wrong, you could see your entire system bricked. This is all on you. You theoretically have a fully-working SNES Classic with 21 top-notch titles, including Super Mario World, Final Fantasy III, Super Mario Kart, and Mega Man X. How much is adding Chrono Trigger to the library worth for you?
