It was bound to happen: someone was going to hack the NES mini at some point, and that what hackers from Japan and Russia have done. They have cracked the NES mini and made it possible to load new games onto the system.
The teams in Russia and Japan separately proved that hacking the console and adding new games is possible. And they’ve released a guide to how to mode your NES mini to make it run new games.
There are quite a few steps, but none require you to physically open or alter your console. However, considering just how difficult it is to get an NES mini these days, we doubt many gamers will run the risk of bricking their system.
But if you’re interested, you can find the complete guide here. Check out a video of the modded console in action below, where an additional 30 NES games were added.
