California peripheral manufacturer Hyperkin is at it again, following up the RetroN5 multi-console and the SmartBoy mobile phone device with the next logical step. As reported by Gizmodo, the Ultra Game Boy (working title) is a dedicated Nintendo Game Boy clone system with a twist; along with its aluminum housing and throwback volume/contrast control dials—both of which echo the design of the original iteration of the 1996 Game Boy Pocket—the Ultra also boasts an LCD backlight that can shift through the RGB spectrum. In addition to a USB-C port for charging, Gizmodo touts left and right audio-out connections tailored specifically to the chiptune community. The handheld should be ready for launch late this summer at a <$100 price point, and additional details can be found using the link below.
