He has updated his hakchi2 tool which allows you to side load pretty much any SNES game you want onto the system, expanding on the number of games it supports.
Japanese launch sales numbers are in for the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Famicom, and Nintendo has unsurprisingly sold quite a few of the retro consoles in its home country. And now, a new Japanese trademark for the Game Boy has been filed in Japan. Hrm. If so, let us know what you think of it in the comments.
It's worth noting that the trademark application doesn't specifically use the "Game Boy" name as part of its filing, as Kotaku points out, but the image of the classic handheld system is hard to mistake for literally anything else.
Looking for something a little more universal? DarkGiygas created this awesome border, which mimics original Super Nintendo box art. We would not be surprised if Nintendo gave birth to a Game Boy Classic Edition, and not just because it would be a logical release given its recent success with retro gaming. In 2005, the Japanese firm came up with a smaller version of the Game Boy Advance, dubbed as the Game Boy Micro.
Even though a Classic Mini Game Boy is not completely out of question, there are some limitations to it.
As for why Nintendo filed a trademark application for an image of a Game Boy, it's possible that it is simply trying to protect its brand, securing the likeness of the Game Boy for official swag and making sure other companies don't try to copy its design.
Nevertheless, if Nintendo does not come with any such device, you can always play Game Boy cartridges using Hyperkin's Android phone add-on SmartBoy.
Separately, there are reports that the Japanese company could be working on one more "Classic Edition", this time of the N64 console, which sold almost 33 million units during its availability from 1996-2003.
