SmartBoy Coming To European Markets

The SmartBoy allows you to use Game Boy and Game Boy Color cartridges on Android smartphones via emulation.

This accessory is compatible with NTSC/PAL GB and GBC cartridges but it also works with Game Boy Advance apps from Google Play. The emulation upscales to phone’s resolution.

The gadget’s button set features an eight-way D-pad; two action buttons; a start and select button; and an included battery with 5 hours of autonomy that can be charged through the phone.
