This Game Boy Color-Inspired Wii Is Absolutely Gorgeous (VIDEO)

Nintendo Wii GameBoy Color Mod

Modders sure are a talented bunch, whether it’s those who create intriguing experiences in-game or those who work with a more physical medium. That said, how does a Nintendo Wii the size of a Game Boy Color sound to you? Pretty great, right? Well, you’re in luck.

GingerOfMods recently released a video that shows off their amazing work on the WiiBoy Color, which is exactly what it sounds like. Taking parts from various Nintendo consoles, peripherals, and portables, with a bit of help from a 3D printer, they were able to create a stunning product that looks like it was released by Nintendo themselves. Check out the Wii mod in action, and what went into making it, in the video below:

Incredible, right? Just imagine having a whole Wii in your pocket. On top of this, the Wii is backwards compatible, which means you would also have an entire GameCube in your pocket. And the Virtual Console? In your pocket. The quality and functionality of the build are nothing short of spectacular and would surely be a great buy for any Nintendo fan.

Speaking of which, if you were wondering about whether or not you’d be able to pick one up for yourself, you’re in luck. GingerOfMods does do commissions and they note that their Instagram and Twitter are the best places to reach them should you have a request.

It is absolutely worth noting that this product will not be cheap, both in terms of quality and price. It is noted that a portable build usually comes in around $1,000, but can fluctuate based on what the consumer is looking for. Given the time it takes to make one, the parts that are needed, modifications, and more, it will take some time to get the final product. Needless to say, the need is mighty.
