SNES emulator released for Windows RT and Windows 8

Every self-respecting OS should have its retro game console emulator, don't you think? Well, there's one already available for Windows RT, meaning that Microsoft's mobile platform just got a bit cooler. The app in question is called Snes8x and it's available for free at the Windows Marketplace for both Windows RT and Windows 8 Pro.

Since Snes8x is based on the widely popular SNES 9x emulator, we're expecting it to run flawlessly on the Microsoft Surface and other Windows RT based tablets. Obviously, having a physical keyboard of some kind is highly recommended, but even if you don't you can still play some Secret of Mana using the on-screen controls.

Anyone who is interested is free to download Snes8x at the Windows Marketplace, and if you want to know how to get your old-school gaming fix on an Android device, we have a guide dedicated to that. Where to get ROMS, however, is something we won't tell you, but a quick Google search should do the trick.
