Team MaxConsole Proudly Presents:
A Digital Review of the Analogue Super NT

Released in Japan in November of 1990, the Super NES was arguably one of the best entertainment system consoles ever released. It gave the previously released Sega Genesis a run for its money by outselling it by over 10 million units and delighted its fan base with both a strong first party and third party support.

Today, we are able to re-live the '90s gaming experience via a new retro-style reboot of the classic console as a new offering from a well-known gaming accessory company called Analogue: The Analogue Super NT -- This robust little kit of a console offers native HDMI support and a cartridge slot which is not available in all other SNES clone offerings currently available in crowded retro console market.

Here, in the beginning of this review, I would like to emphasize to the end user...

Forked from the original @ClusterM 'hakchi' releases, this one offers alot of UI improvements for the Retro Mini's

This is a fork of hakchi2 (by ClusterM) by princess_daphie, DanTheMan827, and skogaby. The aim of this fork is to not only provide new UI features and enhancements, but also bring the core of hakchi2 up to date with the rest of the modding ecosystem (i.e. USB host support, SD support).

Zelda Glitch Hunters Discover a GameCube Emulator That Could Run on the Switch
At the very least, a GameCube game could virtually run on the Switch

Last year, it was announced that a special licensing agreement between Nvidia and Nintendo would allow the Nvidia Shield selling in China to have some old 'Nintendo' games from the Gamecube and Wii libraries, and its been discovered that the GC ones are emulated, which basically means in the near future we could see that emulator running on the Nintendo Switch either officially or unofficially since the Shield uses the same Tegra X1 processor as the Switch does.
