The highly anticipated 2011 E3 conference has come and gone. Often times, up to the minute gaming conferences mean nothing to retro gamers. Sometimes, the best hope is a remake or sequel to games gone by. This year, however, Hyperkin threw out the SupaBoy. It is a handheld Super Nintendo Entertainment System.
The SupaBoy is slated to be THE solution to Super Nintendo gaming on the go. Touted as more of a portable SNES than a handheld game, this little gem displayed a nearly perfect emulation of F-Zero at the conference.
It features a 3.5 inch screen display and is set up like the old gaming controllers of the original SNES, making it an easy pick-up for retro gamers. Battery life is over five hours in testing and it has stereo sound with adjustable volume control. Projected price is guessed at near USD $80.
There is no release date yet for the SupaBoy, but you can check out more and follow its progress here.
