How to add games to the SNES Classic

Spread the love

Preparing the SNES

To start off, you will need to download a program called Hakchi. This is the program that lets us add games to the SNES Classic. To get started load up the program and select Kernel > Install/Repair.

  • Answer ‘yes’ to the popup
  • From this point, follow the on-screen instructions to connect your SNES to your computer and Hakchi.

Once this is done, the SNES will take a few minutes to reboot and then you are all set to add any games that you want.

Adding Games

To get started click on the large ‘Add more games’ button at the bottom left of the program.

Find the SNES ROMS for the games that you would like to add and select them. You may have to do this one game at a time. After you have selected and added all of the games that you want, click on ‘Synchronize selected games with NES/SNES Mini’ on the bottom right.

This concludes the guide, you can then power off your SNES and disconnect it from your computer. Load up your SNES on your TV and your games should be located in a separate folder titled ‘More games…’. Select the folder and enjoy!
