NES Classic Edition Secret Message To Hackers Found In The Code


Recently, some dedicated hackers have managed to somewhat expand the NES Classic Edition functionality, with users now having the chance to add additional games to the recently released console. Interestingly enough, it seems like the console's developers expected the hacking of the NES Classic Edition, and have left a message for hackers in the code.

The message, which has been discovered in the Famicom Mini console by Twitter user bakueikozo, asks hackers to not break the console, as efforts, tears and hours have been put in its development.

This is the hanafuda captain speaking. Launching emulation in 3...2...1. Many efforts, tears and countless hours have been put into this jewel. So, please keep this place tidied up and don’t break everything! Cheers, the hanafuda captain.

Even without hacking the console to add additional games, the NES Classic Edition is a more than worthy purchase for long-time Nintendo fans, as noted by Dave in his review of the system.

It’s a great Christmas gift, but above all else, the NES Classic feels like a collector’s item, aimed at the Nintendo faithful. Will today’s kids really play these games for hours on end, when they have an Xbox One or something similar to entertain themselves with instead? I’m not sure they will, I think that’s down to the Nintendo fans. Still, if you can convince someone to play Super C with you, you just might find yourselves playing for longer than you’d expect.
