While many retro gamers will argue that the Game Boy Advance is the greatest handheld of all time, others believe the system could do with an overhaul. The K1 GBA is a product of this belief - a Game Boy Advance clone which can load games from SD card, emulate a handful of retro gaming systems and output the action to a TV.
This new arrival from Hong Kong is set to put an end to the countless Game Boy Advance clones out there by stepping away from lackluster software emulation. Instead the K1 GBA features the system on a chip hardware solution which promises near perfect compatibility with the Game Boy Advance library, also holding the ability to connect up with an official system for multiplayer action.
The real power behind the K1 GBA lies within the system's bundled flash cartridge, the K-Card. This Game Boy Advance flash card not only allows you to load Game Boy Advance games from an SD card, but also NES, PC-Engine / Turbografx 16, Master System, Game Gear, Game Boy, and Game Boy Color ROMs.
But the K1 GBA's most appealing feature has to be the addition of TV Out. The supplied cable will have you casting aside your clunky Nintendo Gamecube and Game Boy Player Adapter, allowing you to enjoy the handheld action full-screen without the need of additional hardware.
Sounds too good to be true, right? Well the K1 GBA is a readily available clone from Hong Kong which will set you back just $69.99. But enough talk, how about we take a look at this unofficial Game Boy Advance system in action.
