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.

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).
