I’m more of a fan of the games that come loaded with the NES

I think they mean you can sideload NES games on the SNES?
Yes exactly I have around 50 SNES and 30 NES games loaded onto my SNES classic. Even if you only wanted to mainly play NES titles, you can fit more of them on the SNES

Google hakchi2 guides or check out the FAQ on https://www.reddit.com/r/miniSNESmods/
So will have to find ROMs through torrents, etc. And use a crack type thing to get them on the SNES?

Might look into it!

Hakchi2 is a tool for flashing a custom kernel and also a GUI for adding your own ROMs to the SNES Mini. You can also add plugins like RetroArch (another emulator) that let you emulate stuff from various console eras. The only real constraint is space but some people are using USB-OTG cables to hook up external hard drives and such. There is still plenty of space to get all of the good games for both the NES and SNES on there.

There is no need to dig through torrent sites to find SNES roms, they are readily available on many websites though its against the rules here to mention them so no one will link them. Use Google.

Does the re-released NES classic have more memory than the original? I would think they'd be using the rev2 boards from the SNES.

Playing through Final Fight 3 (rom) on SNES classic.
The best multiplayer side scrolling beat 'em up game IMO.

Final Fight 3 is more fun than Turtles in Time, Power Rangers: Movie Edition, or any of the Streets of Rage games
but often got overlooked because the first two Final Fight games were bad and the game was released at the end of the SNES's life cycle.


There are alternate paths to take in this game.
I skipped over 2 bosses by triggering the alternate paths (break he bus stop sign, entering newly opened broken down doors).

The new NES classic has the same space as the first launch version. NES games are so small that if you wanted to you could add the entire NES game lineup into
an NES classic.

I actually found a tear down. It's actually a revision 3 board. slightly different, streamlined to be used in either snes or nes.

I thought I had read somewhere that the SNES classic NAND was larger than the NES, but I see both are 512MB.
