Two other Game & Watch hacking videos remain relevant at the time of pressing: one describes how to load a Doom port to the device and one that discusses how to dump the firmware.

But Nintendo’s copyrights on the games themselves give the company an extremely broad assessment of which “performances” of those games allow or block through the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
Unlike the NES and SNES Classic Edition consoles, which were relatively easy to hack via a direct USB cable connection, Gameplay and viewing: Super Mario Bros. The device has a locked processor, AES-encrypted flash memory and no data connection via the USB-C charger. Thus, hacking Game & Watch currently requires opening the system and using user hardware to dispose of custom firmware and home drinking software back and forth.
Stacksmashing tells Gizmodo that they are editing the videos in question and will file disputes in an attempt to return them to the service. Nintendo did not respond to a request for comment from Ars Technica.
