If Nintendo ever comes out with a Game Boy that looks like this, we’ll be first in line to get one.
The Game Boy 1up looks somewhat of a hybrid between the original Game Boy and a Wii controller. German based graphic designer Florian Renner put this piece together and it’s possibly one of the coolest concepts we’ve seen in a hot minute.
Renner payed homage to the classic Game Boy design with his version. The rotational D-pad and additional L and R trigger buttons make for a more interesting and possibly better gaming experience.
While Nintendo has done a lot with their designs, we’ll definitely love to see them adopt this concept. It will be a mix of nostalgia and a breath of fresh air.
