Polymega’s latest firmware update arrives today and brings with it some much-requested features – as well as some unexpected ones.

System Update v1.1.18 finally allows users to install games that are not currently part of the console’s internal database, which is huge news. The update will also allow users to move installed games from one location to another.

The usual raft of bug fixes and improvements are also included, but the feature few expected is the ability to apply Game Boy and Virtual Boy screen filters to your games, just as you would a CRT filter.

As a fun new way to see your games, we’ve added a special bonus filters to Polymega’s Virtual Display, which allows you to play in a simulated Game Boy and Virtual Boy mode. It’s a fun way to change things up, and a good Holiday Party trick to boot!

The update launches today, Wednesday, December 29th, at 8AM PST.

Polymega’s road to market has been a long one, but earlier this year, units finally began to arrive in the hands of those who had pre-ordered a few years ago. In more good news, it was revealed last month that the next Element Module for the system would provide N64 support.
