A new Kickstarter campaign by IntecGaming aims to convert the Game Boy Advance into a console-like experience. Its ‘GBA HDMI Kit’ has so far raised just over $10,000 USD (with a goal of $49,697) and promises to be highly portable, easy to operate and a fun DIY device.

It also comes with built-in Bluetooth receiver, allowing it to support all sorts of gamepads (PS4, PS5, Switch Pro, Xbox One). Retro gaming mod YouTube channel Macho Nacho Productions was sent a kit, and has uploaded an entire breakdown – showing the unboxing, installation and how it works.

As you can see, it’s as simple as connecting the GBA motherboard to the interface board, screwing it all together and then placing it inside the shell. You can learn more about the product, its assembly, and how it compares to the competition over on the official Kickstarter page. If the project is successfully funded, the estimated delivery is July 2022.
