Nintendo GameCube Video Game Console 20th Anniversary Portable
The Nintendo GameCube was first released in Japan on September 14, 2001, and it celebrates its 20th anniversary today. This was Nintendo’s sixth-generation of home video game consoles and successor to the Nintendo 64.

This isn’t exactly a portable Nintendo GameCube, as in one that uses the original hardware, but rather the G-Boy Rev III. Simply put, this $325 DIY kit is no longer available, but was capable of converting a Wii into your own handheld game console. Featuring a 3D printed case, 3.5” LCD VGA display, a heatsink with blower fan, custom analog sticks / shoulder buttons, speakers, and several custom PCBs. Since you’re using a real Wii motherboard, you’re able to play all GameCube and Wii games perfectly without any emulation software. Plus, it can run WiiWare as well as Virtual Console
