SNES Emulator Released for Windows RT, Microsoft Surface

Android has enjoyed a myriad of emulators for quite some time now. There are emulators for SNES, NES, Genesis, PlayStation, N64, and many more. With the release of Windows 8 RT, developers have a chance to introduce the emulator goodness all over again. Microsoft Surface owners can now get their hands on a SNES emulator.

XDA Forum Member Vdek has posted about a SNES emulator found on the Windows Store. Here is the brief description and feature list from the Windows Store:

Description
Snes8x is a Super Nintendo emulator for Windows 8 and Windows RT. The app is based on Snes9x, a free and portable SNES emulator.
Features
Play Super Nintendo games
Support for virtual touch controls and keyboard input

If you were a SNES buff and you own the Microsoft Surface, prepare to go hunting for ROMs because now you can play your old favorites all over again. Also in the app description, it mentions support for ARM, x86, and x86-64 instruction sets. So if you’d like to try this out on a laptop or desktop running Windows 8, you can go right ahead.

For the Windows Store link, discussion, and additional info, check out the original thread.
