Nintendo GameBoy Clone - "Ultra GameBoy" from Hyperkin

NintendoVia Gizmodo and more: Game Boy Is Coming Back Thanks to Hyperkin. There are a lot of unknowns - right now, we know that this looks like the GameBoy Pocket, that "Ultra Game Boy" is not the final name, that it has a light-up screen, and that it charges by USB-C. We see a GameBoy Color cartridge in the slot, but it's unknown if it plays the full-on color games, or Super GameBoy games, or of course GameBoy Advance games. It's estimated to be $100 or less this summer.

If you're experiencing deja vu, you're not alone. At CES 2017, we were introduced to RetroUSB's Super Retro Boy which has since been put on hold - and this is an odd reason - due to a trademark being registered by Nintendo. This shouldn't affect much other than how the item is named and marketed, but it's not coming out any time soon. Hyperkin has a pretty good track record of getting products to market - the quality of which is all over the map - so anything is possible if or when the "Ultra Game Boy" hits stores later this year.
