You didn’t know how badly, how desperately in the core of your being you needed a Nintendo smartphone until today. It is the smartphone we deserve, and the one we need right now. It’s the most ‘take my money’ concept in centuries, and ever since the design came to light, its lack of existence has been driving Nintendo fans mad.
Included in the fantasy concept is everything a nostalgic gamer needs in a phone – 8-bit power-saving mode, a Game Bat offering classic gaming controls, and the most important, cartridges. Because we love cartridges. Check out the glory:
Important side note – Reddit user Show-Me-Your-Moves has pointed out one crucial missing feature:
“Nintendo Phone comes pre-loaded with Junior Trainer Joey’s number.
HEY! WANNA HEAR ABOUT MY L.9 RATTATA?!”
If your wallet hasn’t already rocketed out of your pocket and through your computer monitor, go ahead and strap it down because, sadly, the Smart Boy is no more than a great idea at this point. Created by Pierre Cerveau as part of Gizmodo’s smartphone design series, the Smart Boy will always be in our hearts… and instantly in our hands if Nintendo ever makes it a reality.
