    Seeing how the NES Classic allows for more NES games and even other games like SNES, Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Sega Genesis. is it possible the SNES will be hacked, too? I'd love to put ActRaiser and Soul Blazer on it!

    IMO of course! A hugely popular device like that might as well have a bullseye on it!

    I can't wait until the N64 Classic is released and I finally get to play N64 games w/o slowdown or graphical glitches!

    Depends on if Nintendo make it easily exploitable again.

    They should since we only get 21 SNES games, as apposed to the 30 NES games we got with the NES Classic.

    I don't think Nintendo gonna do too much to make it secure. You can't buy more games for it so Nintendo won't lose anything on people hacking the SNES classic.

    Quality vs quantity, let's be honest here, some of those NES games aren't that good. Donkey Kong? Ice Climber? They didn't even get the real Contra.

    A lot of early NES games like Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr., Donkey Kong 3, Mario Bros., Ice Climber, Balloon Fight, Clu Clu Land, Mach Rider, and Pinball are not bad games. Just very average and they haven't aged well, considering that all of those games are over 30 years old. SNES games have aged better than most NES games. I just hope we can hack the SNES Classic, so we can add more games like ActRaiser, Soul Blazer, and Chrono Trigger.

    Both Kirby's Dream Land 3 and Yoshi's Island have issues where they lag, when played on the NES Classic, so I'm glad at least the latter is confirmed for the SNES Classics. I don't buy that "Patient issues" with the Super FX games, crap. I mean, this is the first time in 22 years that the original Yoshi's Island had been re-released, not counting the 2011 3DS Ambassador and the 2014 Wii U Virtual Console re-releases of the GBA version. Also, this is the first time that Star Fox has finally been re-released, along with it's unreleased sequel. I hope we even get BS Zelda running on there, that would be awesome, too since Nintendo will never bother to re-release those games, not even in Japan.

    I can't wait for the N64 Classic since N64 emulation has always been a problem, even 20 years later. Imagine playing GoldenEye 007 and Banjo-Kazooie on your N64 Classic by installing an exploit to upload the ROMs, and without any slowdown or graphical issues that not even Project64 is capable of doing. It would be the first time in history that N64 emulation went on par with NES and SNES emulation.

    Super FX was owned by Argonaut Software, the problem was the fact they went under back in 2002 or so, which resulted in uncertainty for the Super FX fate, Nintendo probably had the rights the whole time. What's funny is that the VC code for Wii and Wii U didn't even have the GSU-1 (Super FX) chip emulated at all. Why they decided to emulate them now is anyone's guess.

    Does the New 3DS VC have the code that runs the SA1 games? If so, then SMRPG, KSS, and KDL3 could run at full speed. Not trying to ask for some links or anything, But I would love to install some CIAs of the SNES games that were never released on the 3DS eShop or Wii U eShop. I'm talking about games like Super Mario All-Stars, ActRaiser, Soul Blazer, Illusion of Gaia, Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana, and Zombies Ate My Neighbors.

    In theory, yes, it already emulates the S-DD1 chip (Street Fighter Alpha 2), so it's definitely powerful enough for SA-1 methinks.

    Is there any CIA dumps of SMRPG, KSS, or KDL3? I did make CIA files of them via the 3DS VC Injection app but never tested them on my N3DS, which is at 11.4 with Luma3DS 7.0.5.

    I would love to have these SNES on my N3DS:

    Super Mario All-Stars
    Super Mario RPG: Legend of The Steven Stars
    Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
    Kirby Super Star
    Kirby's Dream Land 3
    Kirby's Avalanche
    Star Fox
    Street Fighter II: The World Warrior
    ActRaiser
    Soul Blazer
    Chrono Trigger
    Secret of Mana
    Secret of Evermore
    Zombies Ate My Neighbors
    Aladdin
    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time

    No idea, I'm involved primarily with the Wii U scene, sorry. But I hope the Snes classic does get hacked, that way I can have a convenient setup of all the games I ever owned, heh, and then some.

    I want to see this hacked just so we can give it some blast processing.

    I imagine it will be, however why do you care?
    If you made it to the point you are chatting on a site like this you can presumably use an emulator to achieve the same results, or far superior ones on hardware that is likely better and available right now for a fraction of the price.

    On my new Samsung Galaxy S8, SNES9X EX+ runs almost flawlessly except the sound barely skips every 2-5 minutes, sometimes even 10 minutes. Is there a way to fix that? I'm using the MOGA Piviot controller add-on and it works better on my new phone, than it did on my old phone. In fact, my old phone Sony Xperia Z3v ran SMRPG without any issues and I beat the entire game and this was 3 years ago, I believe.

    No idea. I don't use phones or tablets, much less emulate things on them.

    If you want something vaguely portable then it seems refurb laptops (possibly even a netbook or something like that) go for next to nothing and will do everything the SNES classic hardware will likely do.

    I've some issues with laptops in the past. I now use a desktop (and have since 2012) and I wondering if there's a good portable out there (with proper controller support) that can emulate classic games (from NES to N64) properly or even a proper SNES emulator for my phone since buying a GPD XD is out of the question. They're like $200! The lowest I've seen is like $160.

    Yeah that's right, a proper ROM to Star Fox 2 will be included on the SNES Classic. The others are incomplete dumps, right?

    I think it was the same situation with EartBound Zero/Beginnings, right? The ROM dumps online were not complete ones or were they?
