Reflect on previous Nintendo generations and you may remember the portable GameCube handheld emulators inspired by the Game Boy Advance SP. If you’ve ever wanted a real version of something like this, then… that’s exactly what console controller and Youtuber ‘GingerOfOz’ created.
Modifiers were able to shrink this model down to a Game Boy Advance SP-style handheld. In fact, it’s actually running a “trimmed” Wii motherboard inside, which apparently supports Nintendo’s GameCube game library.
In an effort to maintain the GameCube experience, custom software has been added to include the classic boot screen. And if you’re wondering about the display, it’s 480p. There’s also headset support, and the entire device is designed with the help of 3D printing and graphics software. About the only downside seems to be the battery life – it only lasts an hour and a half.
Oh, and GingerOfMods also reached the bottom of the original concept. Apparently, that person’s name is Demond (known as “gcpguy22” on Instagram), and he made this pattern just for fun while in college. He then posted it online to see if people at the time thought it was legit, and the rest is history.
The same YouTube channel has previously shared videos of mobile Wii and the PlayStation 2 handheld. What do you think of this real-life entertainment? Leave a comment below.
