How to: Play Retro Video Games on Kodi (Nintendo, Sega, Atari and More)

This is a post from, which i wanted to share with my readers since i have spent the last two days reliving my childhood, playing some awesome retro games and soaking up the nostalgia, having a thoroughly wonderful time (Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Mortal Kombat, Mario).

I intend to create some future content on Retro Gaming and this will serve as a good introduction guide to get you started. I found this to be very straight forward to set-up and i’m sure you will to.

Retro gaming is the newest feature being introduced in the upcoming release of Kodi 18 Leia. Now you’ll be able to play all your favourite video games directly through Kodi, no additional hardware required. In addition to Kodi offering built-in emulators, there is a new addon called the Internet Archive ROM Launcher which allows you to download vintage video games on the fly, free of charge! Since older video games are no longer distributed or sold, they are considered abandonware and are therefore DMCA exempt. This is still in the testing phase, but we think it’s hella’ cool nonetheless.

I have tested this successfully on my Windows PC and Sony Bravia TV.
