Nintendo Game Boy Phone Case/Controller Patent Discovered

Nintendo Has Patented a Functional GameBoy Case For Smartphones Nintendo's phone case patent turns your handset into a Game Boy
Troy Mann | 07 October, 2018, 14:53

The patent was official filed on March 16, 2018. Imagine this case, a connection to all original GameBoy games, complete with a touchscreen besides.

If made into an actual product, the design appears to allow players access to the tactile D-pad and A & B buttons that were once hard-wired into the handheld-addicted sense memories of gamers of a certain age. After all, a lot of touchscreen games utilize a classic, on-screen button interface that you interact with through your fingers. When the buttons are pressed, a conductive sheet is used on the inside to ensure fully functional input on the touchscreen. Logically, this would mean that Nintendo is working on bringing several models for the Game Boy case, although at the moment nothing is known about them.

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. It's possible to "remove" the case and put it off to the side of your phone, but that still doesn't explain what you're supposed to do with the case when the face of it is covering up a lot of screen real estate. Simply purchase the case, place your phone inside and download an app, which will take the form of a Game Boy emulator. There is also a cutout for the front-facing camera. Or has Nintendo found a size that works for every phone now available?

The Game Boy may be about to make a comeback on smartphones, if a clever new patent is anything to go by.

While the examples show the case being used on a smartphone, Nintendo has said it may not exclusively be used for just phones and "may be attached to other electronic equipment such as a tablet terminal that does not have a telephone function".
