Update #1 [Sat 17th Sep, 2022 15:35 BST]: The Analogue Pocket SNES core is now available. You can download it from here.
Original Story [Wed 14th Sep, 2022 21:45 BST]: The Analogue Pocket's recent v1.1 OS update has opened up the device to developers, and they've wasted no time whatsoever in porting other FPGA cores to the handheld.
We've already seen Game Boy, Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance, Master System, Game Gear and Neo Geo cores become available, and next up it seems we'll be playing NES and SNES games on the machine.
As you can see, amazing progress has been made, and @iam_egg says the only roadblock is the fact that getting SNES games with chip support (like Super FX) might be an issue, at least for the time being.
