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

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

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