Another retro gaming gadget is making a comeback amid the world’s recent obsession with nostalgia. This time, it’s Nintendo’s beloved Game Boy system, a handheld that became one of the greatest tech fads in the ‘90s.
During the Consumer Electronics Show, peripherals manufacturer Hyperkin displayed a demo device called the Ultra Game Boy. Just to be clear, this isn’t an official product licensed by Nintendo. Think of it as Hyperkin’s remake of the original.
Its modern features include an aluminum housing, six hours of battery life, and a USB-C port. Of course, it’s also compatible with classic Game Boy cartridges, allowing users to enjoy games like Super Mario Land and Tetris.
The Ultra Game Boy is scheduled to be released later this year and is expected to go for less than $100.
If you’re interested in a Game Boy, but want something that’s not a dedicated retro device, then you might want to take a look at Hyperkin’s Smart Boy, a gadget that turns your smartphone into a Game Boy emulator.
