Retroflag GPi CASE: The Raspberry Pi Game Boy We've Been Waiting For!
Featured image: Nintendo Life
For years, clever makers on the Sudomod forums have been building their own portable video game emulation consoles by putting Raspberry Pis into original Game Boy shells. What started with a lot of parts and soldering evolved into all-in-one printed circuit boards such as the Kite Circuit Sword. While Kite's brilliant Circuit Sword PCB takes a lot of the pain out of building your own Game Boy Zero, it still requires a substantial time investment, a knowledge of hobby electronics and soldering, and access to certain tools.
At howchoo, we've been teaching you how to build similar unique systems for years. Finally, we're excited to announce that a legitimate company has built what we've all wanted: a portable Raspberry Pi retro gaming rig in the form of a [slightly smaller] original Game Boy DMG-01.
Introducing the Retroflag GPi Case
Retroflag, the company behind many amazing Raspberry Pi cases and USB gamepads, is about to release the Retroflag GPi -- the first commercially-available Game Boy Zero.
This story was originally broken by Nintendo Life, an amazing publication that many of you will undoubtedly remember from your childhood, which continues to deliver great retro gaming news.
Release date and price
The GPi is now available on Amazon for $69.99!
