SNES Classic already hacked to run Chrono Trigger

One of the biggest questions for SNES Classic buyers pre-release was, will it be hackable? Seeing as it shares most of its hardware with 2016’s NES Classic, the answer is yes. Russian hacker Alexey ‘Cluster’ Avdyukhin has already posted online that he’s got Chrono Trigger running on Nintendo’s re-released 16-bit console.

Cluster says he needed some time to figure out how the ROMs on the device working, adding that each ROM will need a bit of fiddling with to get working. He believes he will be able to release the hakchi2 software so consumers can add their own ROMs to the SNES Classic in about a week roughly.

So there you have it folks. The SNES Classic has been hacked! You will soon be able to add the games that should have been included on it in the first place.
