While the console was released less than two weeks ago, a modder who goes by the name "Cluster" on social media has released information online about how he went about getting more games running on the system.

The Nintendo Classic Mini: SNES comes with just 21 games pre-installed, nine fewer than the 30 available on the mini NES.

What's more, modders have uncovered a hidden message in the mini SNES' code.

Cluster posted a screenshot of the note, which read: "Enjoy this Mini,

"Disconnect from the present, and

"Go back to the nineties. (sic)"

He added the caption: "SNES Mini contains hidden message from Nintendo/NERD :) (sic)"

In June, Nintendo promised to create enough units of the console to meet fan demand, revealing they would make more copies than they had of the NES Classic Edition.

In a statement, Nintendo said: "We aren't providing specific numbers, but we will produce significantly more units of Super NES Classic Edition than we did of NES Classic Edition.

"Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition is currently planned to ship from Sept. 29 until the end of calendar year 2017. At this time, we have nothing to announce regarding any possible shipments beyond this year."

Among the 21 titles available on the Nintendo Classic Mini: SNES are 'Super Mario Kart', 'The Legend of Zelda', 'Star Fox' and 'Super Metroid'.

The original 16-bit SNES console was initially released in 1990 in Japan and South Korea, before it dropped in North America in 1991 and then in Europe in 1992.
