Hyperkin made this, and proved such a thing could be successful, so it comes as no surprise given the success of the NES and SNES mini that Nintendo would take another stab at the nostalgia pie and convert another console.
The Gameboy with its huge game library and brand name seemed a no-brainer, the question was always in what form would this take? Well judging from thr recently filed application at The United States Patent and Trademark Office, Nintendo has filed a patent application for a smartphone case that would turn a phone into a Game Boy replica, complete with physical buttons!
Obviously there will be concerns as to how this will work given the multitude of mobile devices and the many sizes available. Bit if anyone can work a compromise that suits all, Nintendo can!
Here’s hoping an announcement is made in an upcoming direct soon.
