Plus, a bunch of convenient new features and options!
The Polymega is a third party, modular game console that makes it easier to enjoy retro games on modern TVs. The system already included support for NES, SNES, and N64 cartridges, but now the library of compatible titles is growing even further. The latest update is rolling out shortly, bringing the console up to Version 1.1.20. In addition to several quality of life features and updates, this will also allow even more SNES/Super Famicom games to work through the system.
One of this update’s biggest new features for Nintendo fans is its support for the OBC-1 and SPC7110 enhancement chips utilized by certain specific SNES/Super Famicom games, as well as support for games that make use of Bandai’s SuFami Turbo accessory. This list of games includes Metal Combat: Falcon’s Revenge, Momotarou Dentetsu Happy, Super Power League 4, Tengai Makyou Zero, plus English patches for the games Tokimeki Memorial and Tengai Makyou Zero.
Here’s a summary of some of the other new features included with this update:
- Red Book Audio CD Support for game discs with included audio tracks, or most other standard audio CDs
- Improved sorting and filtering options to view games of specific genres, release years, etc.
- Power Save Mode, allowing the console to go into a less power intensive state after a set period inactivity
- Recovery Mode, allowing you to factory reset the console if needed
