Random: Modder builds an awesome portable SNES, and we want one

More than five years ago (or exactly five years if you’re in Japan), Nintendo released the Super NES Classic Edition, an adorable and convenient miniature console loaded with some of the best games available on the SNES.

But what if you could take it on the go?

As the good folks over at Time Extension saw it, the modder has created a fan-made handheld SNES (or rather Japan’s Famicom variant). NIWA Channel, which incorporates a 4.3-inch LCD screen based on a Famicom Classic. To create the drive’s outer casing, a Super Famicom controller was fused with a game cartridge for the paltry price of 400 yen ($2.70/£2.40).

In addition to the standard games preloaded on the Famicom Classic, the modder has also included a 64GB Micro SD card with support for running games from the Famicom, Super Famicom, PC Engine, Mega Drive, and Game Boy.

Obviously this thing will never be commercially available, and there’s a pretty serious downside in that you can’t properly take it on the go; currently, without battery support, a USB-C cable is required to boot the hardware.

Still, you can’t argue against its authenticity!

What do you think of this creation? Do you expect to see something similar from Nintendo itself? Let us know!
