Within mere hours of its release, Nintendo Switch Online has been hacked to add other games alongside the 20 NES classics that come with the service. It’s been stated by the hackers that the process is easily replicable if given instructions since it appears the emulation used for the NES games is identical to the software used in the NES Classic Edition.

The NES Classic, SNES Classic, and Nintendo Switch Online are all susceptible to a program called hakchi. “For someone without prior experience in running Switch mods, getting all of it set up at first is a bit of a process, but nothing too hard with proper instructions,” hacker kapu told Polygon. “After an initial setup, it’s insanely easy to swap out ROMs and add entirely new ones.”

But it is not advised that users take to hacking their own Nintendo Switch by themselves.
