I Wonder how Nintendo will fix the language Bug when the device cannot Connect via USB c
Probably IT cannot be fixed without Hacking


I get mine today and will try IT myself
I Hope a Special Button Combo exist

Posted a little Review here too - It would be a SHAME if its locked...the Device itself is a portable Gem for NES and alike.

Maybe there is a reed switch inside that needs a magnet to activate debug mode or the traces might be cut on the board because, realistically speaking the chances of these devices actually needing a legit reflash are very very slim. On the other hand NERD did leave easter eggs for hackers in the Minis as well as that handy dandy storage space so we'll see what happens with this one.

How is the screen quality? It looks like a decent device in videos but not worth it for one and 3/4 games.

Preliminary nope on the portable ROM box:

"it was discovered that this particular Game & Watch is powered by an STM32H7B0VBT6 chipset, which comprises of an ARM Cortex-M7, 128 KBytes Flash and 1024 KBytes of RAM."

That and the Y Type screws seem like they don't want to make it easy to mod this time although its been owned:
