Oh! It's the handheld SNES! Oh!
Retro gaming is becoming as big as the modern, up-to-date stuff these days. It isn’t really, but it sounds good as an opening line. But it’s true that there’s definitely a market for old ZX Spectrum games, ancient Atari games, a revamped Sega Megadrive and a phone that plays original Playstation games.
Could they all be trumped this summer by this, the handheld Super Nintendo? We’re not sure – after all, we’re not a bunch of fortune tellers. But there’s sure to be a niche audience for a gizmo that can accommodate original SNES cartridges, can be played on the move or plugged into a TV and enjoyed in a proper old-school stylee. The US launch is coming soon and there’s certain to be a UK version shortly afterwards. We erm, hope.
Let the global hunt for second-hand cartridges commence!
