Everyone is all about re-launching retro gaming consoles lately. In fact, today we had the launch of the SNES Classic, which we are giving away. On its coattails, we also have the reintroduction of the 1980’s classic Commodore 64 in the form of the C64 Mini. This re-launch of the original C64 is set to happen in 2018 at a price point of around $70.

Hyperkin, a company known for its retro gaming hardware and accessories, leaked some initial details and concept drawings for an upcoming Game Boy-style iPhone add-on recently. Initially considered an April Fools’ joke by many, and it partially was, but the company has since confirmed its validity:
“A lot of you were speculating that the Smart Boy is an April Fools’ Joke. Well, it sort of was. We “leaked” it with the initial intent of testing the market, seeing whether or not it should be something we’d actually make, under the guise of an April Fools’ Joke…Looks like you awesome folks ACTUALLY WANT IT, so the Smart Boy is now in development! Thank you all for your enthusiastic responses!”
