Nintendo Patented A Working Game Boy Case For Mobilephones

Game Boy

Smartphone cases that sport a Game Boy design is not a new thing at all, as many third-party manufacturers have been making these cases for a long time now. However, Nintendo just filed a patent for a working Game Boy shell for smartphones.

Although the case won’t work as a Game Boy itself, Nintendo’s design enables buttons on the case to be designated specific commands to work on smartphones. The US patent was registered by Nintendo itself and was found by Siliconera, which consists of a plastic case shaped like a Game Boy, with working buttons.

When the case is put over a smartphone, a Game Boy screen-sized is displayed, which makes me ask the question if an official Game Boy emulator from Nintendo that is made for this case will arrive in iOS and Android soon.
