Nintendo has patented a working Game Boy shell for your smartphone

Nintendo Has Patented a Functional GameBoy Case For Smartphones Nintendo's phone case patent turns your handset into a Game Boy

Nintendo does not now have any Game Boy software available for Android or iOS devices, but the case design suggests that a line of handheld games are on the way.

The patent was filed a few months ago on March 16th, 2018, and the related images can be found here. As soon as there is further information regarding the case I will be sure to update you.

Man charged following threats to public officials amid Van Dyke trial
He pled not guilty to first-degree murder charges, one charge of official misconduct and 16 counts of aggravated battery. The jury, which deliberated for 7 and one-half hours, acquitted him of one count of official misconduct.


Below the cutout is a D-pad which lies to the left of the case while two individual buttons reside on the right-hand side followed by two more buttons at the center below them which is reminiscent of the "start" and "select" keys we usually see on consoles. Judging from the button placements, this smartphone shell might be used to play games for the original Game Boy. Perhaps the company is looking at releases like February 2017's Fire Emblem Heroes, which has grossed more than $400 million globally since its launch as a motivation for more experiments alone these lines, including a Game Boy-esque case. Unfortunately, touch screen controls have always been a barrier with tactile buttons reigning supreme.

If a patent recently filed in the USA by Nintendo is any indication, Gameboy games might officially come to your iPhone in the future. The exterior of the case also includes openings for the phone speaker and the charging port. Or has Nintendo found a size that works for every phone now available? There's also the chance no new product is actively in the works, and that Nintendo is simply trying out prototypes. Even so, Nintendo doesn't want to restrict itself to smartphones with this patent and mentions that such a cover could be used by "other electronic equipment such as a tablet terminal that does not have a telephone function". Dragalia Lost and Fire Emblem Heroes were built to take specific advantage of smart phones.
