Nintendo Hides Secret Message for Hackers in Famicom Mini

A secret message intended for hackers has been discovered within the coding of the Famicom Mini, the Japanese version of the Nintendo NES Mini. According to Kotaku the message was written by an unnamed programmer using the alias of “The Hanafuda Captain”, and asks hackers to take care of the device they are cracking. It reads:

"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! Cheers, the hanafuda captain."

It was discovered by user Bakueikozo, who tweeted a screenshot of the message amidst the console’s coding.

Kotaku previously reported how North American users are currently modding the Nintendo NES Mini to enable it to play more games than the 30 it launched with.
