How To Get More Games Onto Nintendo's SNES Classic Edition

16-bit games a-go-go

Both the NES Classic and the SNES Classic have been sellout hits upon launch, and it may well be that the company is looking to further delve into the retro device market after a new Game Boy trademark was filed.

The SNES Classic Mini is the 16-bit, retro version of the SNES, but it only comes with 21 games out of the box - we can assume that a lot of them involve moustached men in dungarees - and "Cluster" does not feel that this is enough.

You may still be waiting on a line outside of a store for a SNES Classic, but Nintendo could already be cooking up its next system full of nostalgia.

The trademark was filed on September 15, and this application covers a number of categories, including programs for smartphones, smartphone cases, key holders, watches, and more. The famous Nintendo console is coming back in stock this week, so if you missed it make sure to grab one before Nintendo discontinues this one too.

What's more, the "HackChi" tool also makes it possible for users of the SNES Classic to assign a button on the controller to bring up the system's menu - by default, this requires pressing a button on the console.

"However if you want to get started adding your own Roms to the SNES mini today, this is the only method I am aware of which will allow for this".
