The Super Nintendo You Can Hold In The Palm Of Your Hand

And no, don't make a Game Boy Advance joke, you smartass. Hyperkin's Supaboy is an upcoming handheld unit that's actually a Super Nintendo. Like, you have to insert Super Nintendo cartridges to play it.

Currently slated for a North American release, the Supaboy will play both American and Japanese carts. It also supports multiplayer, as you can either game alone using the in-built LCD screen or plug it into a TV, and use actual SNES pads (not inlcuded) to duke it out.

It runs on a rechargeable battery, giving an estimated 5-5.5 hours of battery life, and should be out this (northern) summer.

There's no word on price yet, but other Hyperkin SNES-compatible consoles go for between $US60-$US70, so this shouldn't be too far off that mark.

    I think I'll grab one of these if only to play the copy of Seiken Densetsu 3 I got from Japan recently =D

    Wish I had a few more SNES carts lying around though...
