At a glance, it looks just like a Game Boy Pocket encased in aluminum.

It even has the multiplayer link port!

It's a good-looking copy, but there's a little more to it than a new case.

Unlike the original Game Boy, Hyperkin's version has a colored backlight.

It's also now battery powered, and Hyperkin says the final version will support USB-C.

It still plays the classic games, though.

It feels good, too.

Hyperkin plans to add a dial to change the backlight color, and the final version will come with software for composing chiptune music. Hyperkin hopes to sell it for less than $100 (about £75 or AU$125) when it launches later this year.
