Super Nintendo Goes Portable with SupaBoy

Hyperkin just announced they will be releasing a portable console to play Super Nintendo games called SupaBoy.

The SupaBoy plays SNES cartridges and is shaped like a SNES controller with a built in 3.5 inch LCD screen. The battery life is supposed to be about 5 1/2 hours.

It also has an AV hookup in the back so you can play the games on a TV with original Super Nintendo controllers attached. This lets you play multiplayer games and games like Mario Paint, Super Scope, or other games that required attachments.

Other specs:

· 5.5 Hours battery life

· Measures: 8.5 x 4 x 1.5 inches

· Weight: 11.5 ounces

· Stereo sound

· AV Out

· Headphone jack

· Adjustable volume control

The design is just a prototype for now, but is planned for release late this summer at a price of $79.99. It is a bit expensive, but might be a great way to play all the SNES games I already own while I'm on the go. I will try to have a review when it comes out.
