The NES Classic Edition was one of the hottest items in the last quarter of 2016. But now that the holidays are over, the announcements have minimised -- and one group is having fun with the remake console.

Kei Studio, a group of modders, is responsible for fitting the Game Boy with the inner workings of the NES Classic Edition. A YouTube video posted by the group showcases how this was done. Interested players will be able to follow the tutorial, but it does require a level of skill. There is also the risk of destroying two consoles instead of combining them into one unique device. Otherwise, it’s simply a great piece of craftsmanship to look at.

The end result is a device, dubbed the Famicom Pocket, that plays the classic retro games found in the NES Classic Edition in the Game Boy. But because the inner workings have been changed, players will still get to enjoy the titles in 8-bit color and not the grayscale range that is synonymous to the Game Boy.

The NES Classic Edition was released November of last year and took the market by storm. The largest appeal of the console is arguably the nostalgia it quenches that is found in thousands of older-generation gamers. In addition, it was on retail for just US$60 (AU$80) -- although it would sell in platforms such as eBay for hundreds of dollars.

Fitted with 30 of the most beloved retro games, including “Donkey Kong,” “The Legend Of Zelda,” “Final Fantasy” and several “Mario” titles, the NES Classic Edition was one of the hottest gift items of 2016.
