The handheld SNES

Call us dramatic, but life's been a little bit duller without having a SNES to play on a daily basis.

Relegated to the console scrapheap, the fittingly titled Super Nintendo Entertainment System holds a very special place in the heart of any kid growing up in the 90s.

We have news though. News that will single-handedly tear those grey storm-clouds right out of the sky.

The SNES is coming back, and this time it will be able to fit in your grateful hands. The Supaboy, which is currently in prototype stage, will be able to play original SNES cartridges. It can also fit two controllers in the front and plug into your TV.

So it's time to start getting angry at your mum for forcing you to throw your old games out and probably time to start trawling eBay for replacements.

It's not got a set release date yet but those in the US can expect to find themselves blowing into cartridges, despite advice from the user manual, this summer.

Hyperkin are the guys behind it so you can thank them here.
