While Nintendo may be planning to release a followup to the NES Classic, the current NES Classic Edition is being enjoyed by the lucky few who were able to get them. Although 30 pre-installed games may sound like a lot, it’s not enough for some. Hackers in Japan and Russia have figured out how to add new games onto the tiny console without having to use tools. According to the hackers on Reddit’s NESClassicMods community, you just need a USB cable, a computer, and some patience to run the hack. Of course there’s an “operate at your own risk” warning because you are dealing with code. So far there haven’t been reports of memory limits and users have reportedly added up to 25 games which include cult classics like Contra and Battletoads.

If you are feeling up to the challenge, head here for full instructions and check out the video above showing off games that can be added.
