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.
