Have you ever wanted to experience a familiar game on a brand new system? Thanks to the Virtual Console and eShop sales, Nintendo fans can now own various classic games across most Nintendo systems. One fan, however, wanted to push the boundaries of science and make his own gaming hybrid. Through a series of photos, a fan demonstrates how you can jam the original Pokémon Blue game into an SNES cartridge and have it work on the system.

For people who are comfortable taking their games apart and can follow a series of directions, the process seems relatively simple. By taking apart a Super Game Boy Cartridge and the Pokémon cartridge, the two can be soldered together with the proper connections in place. Then, by getting a blank SNES cartridge and printing out your own label, you get a very authentic looking Pokémon experience.

Now the Game Boy game can already be played on the television by using the Super Game Boy (Or a Pokémon Stadium cartridge adapter), but the point of this exercise is to turn it into an enclosed game that would go nicely with the rest of your collection.

What are your thoughts? Is this something you’d feel comfortable attempting yourself? Let us know in the comments!

Dan Rockwood
I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Journalism, and though throughout my college career I was forced to write hard news stories about local issues and interview people like police officers and local politicians, I've always wanted to get into video game writing. Whenever I had an open assignment to do for a class I focused it on video games. The majority of the news I consume is about the gaming world, whether it's from G4, IGN, Gamnesia, Zelda Informer, or from my friends on facebook, nothing gets me more excited than the developments taking place everyday in the world of gaming. Now I don't only get to play the games, I get to write about them. And that is pretty awesome.
