The Polymega is a third-party modular game console that makes it easy to play retro games on modern televisions. The system already included support for NES, SNES and N64 cartridges, but the library of compatible titles is still growing. the Last update is being rolled out, bringing the console to version 1.1.20. Along with several quality of life features and updates, this will also allow even more SNES/Super Famicom games to run through the system.
One of the main new features of this update for Nintendo fans is its support for the OBC-1 and SPC7110 enhancement chips used by some specific SNES/Super Famicom games, as well as support for games using 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, as well as English patches for Tokimeki Memorial and Tengai Makyou Zero games.
Here is a summary of some of the other new features included in this update:
- Red Book Audio CD support for game discs with audio tracks included, or most other standard audio CDs
- Improved sorting and filtering options to display games of specific genres, release years, etc.
- Power-saving mode, allowing the console to transition to a less power-hungry state after a set period of inactivity
- Recovery mode, allowing you to factory reset the console if needed
