There’s something about retro that we all seem to love, whether it’s in car or bike design or fashion or yes, even video game consoles. The SupaBoy handheld video game console has been designed to look like the classic SNES controller – except that it comes with a 3.5” display.
It can handle full-size SNES and Super Famicom cartridges. So if you’ve been wondering what to do with those old 16-bit cartridges, now you know.
The SupaBoy has been released, just in time for this Christmas, so you may want to discreetly spread the word among those who may be willing to spend $80 on your gift. No, I don’t mean your friends or relatives are stingy- but these are difficult times all across our planet.
The SupaBoy console has a D-pad, face buttons, right and left shoulder buttons, which all make it look very much like the SNES controller. Its front-loading cartridge ports are compatible with full-size SNES controllers.
It also comes with audio/video out so that you can pit your competitive skills against those of a friend, should you so choose. All you have to do is to connect it to a TV and plug two controllers.
Its battery life is rated at 2.5 hours; that should be more than enough for a veteran like you to show all those impetuous and ill-advised opponents who dare cross your path who the boss really is.
The device is hand-held, measuring 8.5”x4”x1.5” and weighing just under 12 ounces. And yes, it comes with a headphone jack, should you choose to quietly hone your skills in the privacy of your room before you unleash them on your unsuspecting rivals.
