Nintendo's tiny, nostalgia-inducing NES Classic Edition comes preloaded with 30 classic games like Super Mario Bros., Donkey Kong, and PAC-MAN as well as a game-changing "Suspend Point" feature. But if that's not enough to transport you back to 1986, it looks like someone's finally managed to hack the retro gaming console to add dozens of additional games.
Word of the inevitable modification emerged on Reddit over the weekend with some users claiming they were able to get a total of 90 games onto the machine, according to a report by Polygon. The hack takes advantage of how the NES Classic Edition is essentially a simple Linux computer running Nintendo's proprietary software and an emulator for the classic games.
The fairly straightforward hack requires connecting the system to a computer with a USB cable, booting it in FEL mode (recovery mode), then you'll have to follow the instructions detailed on the aforementioned Reddit thread, per the report. As a report by The Verge explains, this involves adding ROM files for the additional games, the legality of which is questionable. This appears to be demonstrated in the YouTube video below.
