What was initially perceived as a very good April Fools’ prank turns out to be one of the coolest accessories for the iPhone 6 we have seen lately. Remember how many days you were spending on your old Game Boy, playing titles like Pokemon or Legends of Zelda? Well, those times will soon be back.
Ah, the memories…
As stated by CNET, video game accessory maker Hyperkin will release the Smart Boy iPhone 6 case, which connects to the phone and allows you to play old-school Game Boy games on it.
But don’t get to excited, as the case doesn’t have built-in games. No, not at all. In order to play the games, you’ll need to actually own cartridges, which are inserted in the case. Now you regret giving them away at that last garage sale, right? Anyway, there’s no need to worry, as you can find a lot of them, at excellent prices, on eBay or similar websites.
Like mentioned above, when Hyperkin made the announcement on their Facebook page, on March 31, everybody took this as a joke. Still, it turned out that it was just a way of seeing if people would actually buy such an accessory.
Available for more devices, soon!
Surprisingly or not, the idea received a lot of positive feedback and the case will soon be available on the market. Also, Hyperkin is considering releasing a similar model for the larger iPhone 6 Plus.
Currently, there’s no information about the case being available for other smartphones, but the company should reveal these details pretty soon.
What do you think about Hyperkin’s initiative? Would you like to play old school games on your phone too? For what device would you buy this amazing accessory?
