First hands on with the Hyperkin SupaBoy - Portable Super Nintendo

Hands-on-with-Hyperkin-SupaBoy-the-portable-Super-NintendoWhile Nintendo we're showcasing their newest developments at E3, the manufacturer of the SupaBoy handheld; Hyperkin was reminding gamers of their retro gaming past. The upcoming portable Super Nintendo was demonstrated at the show, offering what appears to be the ultimate solution to SNES gaming on the go.

Engadget were lucky enough to catch up with Hyperkin at E3 who were sporting an in development version of the SupaBoy. While the device was not the final version, we couldn't help but dream after the SupaBoy displayed near perfect emulation of F-Zero at full speed.

A video of the device in action can be found over at Engadget, featuring a full minute of the high speed racer in action. Our only remaining questions are; when will it be released and will it support PAL games?
