Game Boy and Game Gear photos by Aled Evans
Two-button Street Fighter does not sound fun (from what I remember, Mortal Kombat for Game Boy was straight-up basura), but these old sprites overlaid into real-world environments would be a dream to see on handhelds.
That’s a lot of limited edition/kinda obscure handhelds! Wow, is that a Magic Knight Rayearth Game Gear?

It’s a tiny cartridge reunion! Not everyone could make it, but almost everyone from the Nintendo side of the family is here — Game Boy, GBA, DS, and 3DS. There’s Sega’s Game Gear sandwiched between, wait, who are those guys? Oh, a couple relatives from overseas, Gunpei Yokoi’s kids, WonderSwan and WS Color, showed up!
Just a reminder that portable games are the best.

Time to play Game Gear on my Nintendo 3DS! Can you believe how huge that thing is compared to the 3DS?
If you haven’t hit the eShop yet, the 3DS store now has three releases from Sega’s old handheld: Sonic the Hedgehog: Triple Trouble ($4.99), Shinobi ($3.99, dat Yuzo Koshiro soundtrack), and Dragon Crystal ($2.99).
The only one I’ve played, Triple Trouble, isn’t the most enjoyable Sonic the Hedgehog game, but man, M2’s Game Gear emulation is legit. You can not only set all sorts of display options, but you can also remap all of the controls, and access everything right from the touchscreen without hitting secret button combinations.
I love some of the Game Boy Virtual Console’s quirks, but real talk, like straight up on the really real, for realzies this time — telling the true story of seven strangers, finding out what happens when people stop being polite and start getting real…. REAL WORLD — M2 needs to handle all of the eShop’s Virtual Console emulation from here on out.
Here’s what Game Gear games look like on 3DS. You don’t have to have it running in a tiny window within a Game Gear frame — but if you do, you can change the color of the fake system to black, blue, yellow, or red. Is that enough for you to want to play within this tiny, impractical frame? It totally is for me!
You can also choose whether or not to have accurate screen ghosting, and set “performance” (I guess for accurate slowdown?).
Game Gear games will be out in March for Europe and Japan, including GG Shinobi, Dragon Crystal, and Sonic the Hedgehog: Triple Trouble.

Sonic with a mess of Game Gears and Sega controllers, drawn by Bartotainment (click for a larger image).
You’ve probably seen this a dozen times on sites more hip than ours, but in case you haven’t, “Have you seen this fanmade remix of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 built in Unity?!”
Pretty much everyone has been saying that they’d rather play this than Sonic the Hedgehog 4 (out today!), which I can understand. I think I would rather play Sonic and Tails Adventure 2 than either of the games, though.

Adapters to play games from one thing on another thing! GameSniped’s Link spotted one eBay store, CheapGameStuff, that is simultaneously selling the following adapters:
- The Super 8, designed to play Famicom, NES, and Super Famicom games on a Super NES
- The TriStar 64, which allows you to play Famicom, Super Famicom, and SNES games on a Nintendo 64
- Super Game Boy Booster, for plugging Game Boy games into the PlayStation’s serial port (!)
- The good old Master Gear, used to play SMS games in a Game Gear.
I really want to get a TriStar and plug Game Genies/Game Sharks and games into every port. Just because.
The seller has multiple units of all of these, Some of the prices are tempting (like two bucks for that PlayStation Game Boy thing), while some are $150 (specifically, the TriStar).
