Portable GameCube Handheld is Awesome-Tastic
Not too long ago, you might have seen us report on a little Super Nintendo (SNES) handheld, neatly titled the SupaBoy. Now, in even more cool hardware modding news, we have the the Envision, a portable GameCube system from modder Tchay.
The Envision hardly needs an explanation, but a brief detailing on the specifications on the device should suffice for those with their interests piqued.
Built from a Wii Classic Controller, the handheld has authentic GameCube controller buttons, LCD screen, and SD card compatibility. The Envision has no disc drive, so the SD card slot (using Wiikey Fusion) will be the only route for loading, accessing and playing GameCube games.
Additionally, N64, NES, and SNES games are supported, as seen by the video showcasing Ocarina of Time and StarFox 64. Pretty damn cool.
If these were commercially produced and available to the public, I’d buy one in a heartbeat. The GameCube still remains one of my favorite game systems to date, and having one tucked lightly in my backpack on long trips would be a dream come true.
But alas, only one of these puppies exists on this great earth of ours. BLAST IT ALL.
