Hyperkin Smart Boy

It has been over 25 years since Nintendo launched Game Boy, since then we have come a long way whether it is Nintendo’s own consoles, PlayStation or Microsoft.

However, there are many among us who dote the good old retro handheld console. So what would happen if we got a chance to relive those memories in a completely new product?

If you were interested in the Smart Boy by Hyperkin and then saddened to hear that it was just an April Fool’s prank, rejoice my friends because that little add-on is now a real thing.

It is true that Smart Boy was actually a sort of April Fool’s joke but Hyperkin have learnt that the idea was too good to let go. Now, they have officially stated that they will be making the device which is going to work as an iPhone 6 Plus add-on.

[Hyperkin] has revealed their plans to release a Game Boy-compatible device for the iPhone 6 Plus (with more compatible smartphones to follow). Originally a planned April Fool’s Joke – now a full fledged project for consumer release – the currently named Smartboy will attach to the iPhone 6 Plus, turning the phone into a handheld gaming device compatible with Game Boy and Game Boy Color cartridges.

As you can see in the image above, the accessory is going to fit the iPhone 6 Plus inside with half the screen staying visible. This part of the screen will be used to give the Game Boy experience on your smartphone.

When the Smart Boy comes out, it will bring along many of the old memories; tell us if you will like to buy something like this.
