Thinking of taking your Super NES with you on your next trip? No! What? Hey, the Super NES was a great console, and just because it’s 2011 doesn’t mean you have to rely on emulators to give you the nostalgic satisfaction that you crave for. For those not interested in carrying the old school console with you, move along — for those eager to find out how to take your Super NES with you on your next trip, listen here. Hyperkin has created the SUPABOY! A Portable Pocket SNES Console! Yay!
The company’s newly launched SUPABOY allows you to play Super Nintendo and Super Famicom games on the go. It’s got a 3.5″ LCD screen, 2.5-hour battery life, two front ports for wired SNES controllers, a headphone jack, and an AV out support. Now isn’t that clever?
The SUPABOY is available via Amazon for $79.99. Not bad for a lifetime of gaming memories in the palm of your hands, eh?
