SNES Classic Hacking Tool Hakchi 2.20 is Released

The SNES Classic can be modified to store over 160 games.

The Russian developer, known as Cluster, just released hakchi 2.20. The new version of the NES Classic hacking tool supports now the SNES Classic as well. It just took one week since the release of the SNES Classic on September 29 to hack Nintendo's new retro console. The new hakchi 2.20 version enables SNES Classic owners to install more games.

So far we have seen reports of SNES Classic consoles running up to around 160 games. The new hakchi version is automatically converting SNES ROMs to the special SNES Classic Mini's format. Cluster says that around 75% of games are working fine. Hakchi users can use the RetroArch mod for games that are not working.

Cluster decided to make hakchi support both, the NES Classic and the SNES Classic. You can create individual profiles for different consoles, so you can use the same hakchi2 for NES, SNES, Famicom and Super Famicom.

Hakchi is a Windows app. You can install it using hakchi2_web_installer.exe. The hakchi 2.20 release and documentation is available on GitHub.

As reported in our daily SNES Classic stock report, the first restocking of the SNES Classic was at GameStop's online store on Thursday. The Tracker app has notified its users at 3:40 pm ET about the SNES Classic availability at GameStop.

The Tracker app is available for free on iOS and Android. You can find the app in the app store with searching for just for "i4u". Alternatively, you can receive all in-stock alerts also in real-time on Twitter by following @TheTrackerApp.
