These Japanese Modders Managed To Fit A Famicom Mini Into A Game Boy
What better place to put a Famicom Mini's internals?
The Famicom Mini is likely quite high on many NES Classic owners' "must-buy" lists, even despite its Japanese-only status. A group of modders have taken it upon themselves to create a special version of the Famicom Mini they dubbed the "Famicom Pocket."
The hackers, Kei Studio, put together an amazing 25-minute video that details how the game is played and how the 30 games included on the device were crammed into the pocket package. It's even capable of allowing multiplayer via Game Boy link cables.
The finished product is nothing short of awe-inspiring, especially when you consider how much work had to go into making it work well and run as smoothly as it does. If you're handy with these kinds of things, the video even discusses how you can create your own copycat product, complete with English subtitles.
If you ever take a crack at making your own, come back and let us know how the process went for you. But don't be surprised if we ask how we can get our hands on one of our own.
