I for one fell for this amazing April Fool’s day joke. They posted the same picture I have on here with the following statement on their Facebook page:
Meet the Smart Boy, an upcoming Game Boy-compatible device for the iPhone 6 Plus (with more compatible smartphones to follow). This concept art shows that it will attach to the iPhone 6 Plus, turning the phone into a handheld gaming device compatible with Game Boy and Game Boy Color cartridges.
It will also feature an eight-way D-pad; two action buttons; a start and select button; and an included battery that can be charged through the phone itself providing 5 hours of gameplay. The gameplay itself will output through the iPhone 6 Plus’ own screen.
As this is only a conceptual design, features may be removed or added in its current development stage.
I was all over social media like a jackass screaming “I WANT ONE!” Turns out it was a bit of an April Fool’s day prank, that was in turn a leaked marketing test. Do to a bunch of jackasses like me showing interest Hyperkin as announced that they are going to start development on the SMART BOY. Now I have no idea if this will actually see the light of day, but it would be pretty kick ass. What do you think?
