Nintendo Hides Secret Message for Hackers Inside NES Classic

It should come as no surprise that the Nintendo Classic Mini has already been hacked. The system comes with 30 games pre-installed but determined hackers have managed to figure out a way to get more games onto the system. It appears that Nintendo knew that it would only be a matter of time before this happened, and hid a secret message for any would-be hackers inside of their diminutive console. This message was left by a programmer who goes by the handle of “The Hanafuda Captain.” The Hanafuda name is an homage to the hanafuda cards that Nintendo used to sell before becoming a video game company. Here is what the message says: “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!

You can also opt for the Gamepad Combo Kit for $24.99, which offers a 10′ extender cable to make your controller length longer, as well as a Gamepad Classic wireless controller.
