SNES Classic Mini hack hits Github, kills your social life

ClusterM How To Hack The Mini SNES To Add More Games

The SNES Classic Mini just recently hit the stands, and although it has 21 games on its own, a new hack is able to load up to 150 games in the library. Nintendo has not made any official announcements regarding other Classic Edition consoles, but late last week, a trademark Twitter bot published a filing from Nintendo featuring a picture of the original Game Boy. Though numerous categories are not related to the gaming, it may have been included to protect the Nintendo Classic Mini Game Boy brand, notes Kotaku.

Though Nintendo is now more into mobile games, the Game Boy holds a nostalgic value to the fans.

If you do manage to get your hands on one, feel free to comment below and let us know about your experiences with the process.

It also covers smartphone cases/covers and accessories like key holders, necklaces and watches. Then again, the hardest part would really be getting your hands on one of the classic consoles since Nintendo can't seem to manufacture enough to cover demand for them (which is clearly done on purpose).

The folks over at the Japanese site Ninten-Switch.com dove into the trademark filing and came back with a lot of information. It describes a "program for home video game machine" and includes an image of the first Game Boy originally released way back in 1989. In 2005, the Japanese firm came up with a smaller version of the Game Boy Advance, dubbed as the Game Boy Micro.

A trademark citing does not always mean a real product, but a fact that can't be denied is Nintendo's Classic Edition brand has enjoyed a massive success. The entire collection is definitely worth your time if you're into Nintendo history and just what goes into making a game.
