Available to order from AMAZON
One of the most iconic gaming devices, the Nintendo GameBoy was originally released on April 21st 1989 and went on to sell millions of units worldwide. At the time, it was the height of technology and you couldn't be seen without one. With classic games like Tetris, Zelda & Super Mario Land, it had kids hooked for hours on end.



Now with a huge revival of retro gaming consoles trying to compete with modern technology, there is a demand to combine them and make it more accessible on today's devices. Considering the average Smartphone is 1000's of times more powerful than a GameBoy ever was, it's not that challenging to make the cross-over.



Hyperkin LABS are the American electronics company behind the SmartBoy. They have created an easy to use attachment that you can simply slot your phone into and start playing classic GameBoy titles with no additional software or power, it all runs from your phone.



It's compatible with iPhone & android, all you need is your favorite GameBoy cartridges to get started and that's it!

The SmartBoy is available for pre-order now from Amazon and will be released on 21st AUG 2017
