We have seen ROMs that are playable directly on the web browser in the past.

In fact, there are entire websites dedicated to offering games in this format.

For example, we covered the Eclipse browser-based emulation website in our list of the best emulators for Chromebook.

It is cool to see the actual game’s owner offering some of their classics to the fans in an easily accessed format. Something we hope to see more of in the future.

We’re looking at you, Nintendo!
