This “Portable” Super Famicom Isn’t What We Had In Mind

The Switch launches today, which is Nintendo’s modern take on what a portable console should be. This “portable” Super Famicom isn’t in line with that philosophy. Nor is it the mini Super Nintendo console that we’ve been dreaming about ever since the release of the NES Classic. Still, it gets the job done. See it in action below.

As you can see, the mod involved carving out space for both a display and an embedded controller in the console itself (the L and R buttons have been moved to the sides of the system). Speakers were also added, with a volume button on the back corner. There aren’t any visible wires, so we assume there’s a built-in battery as well.

It may not be the most elegant solution, but hey—it works! Plus, it plays actual cartridges instead of emulated ROMs. Having owned a Game Boy, I can say that I would have killed for this back in the ’90s.
