Handheld gadgets seem to be getting bigger these days. Phones are getting bigger and better screens, and some are barely a step down from a tablet. The Gameboy was never tiny, but now it just got huge.
Game Boy XXL is an enlarged replica of the original platform, with a 19 inch screen and a whopping D-pad and huge buttons. Not quite the handheld gaming revolution that it initially started.
Tetris is undoubtedly THE game of all Gameboy games. It makes sense that if you’re going to show off your massive Game Boy, you try to beat your high score on the bricky game.
The creator of Game Boy XXL is Raz, a student at Erasmus High School in Brussels. Since making his first XXL, he has been asked to make another by his teacher. You’d have to hope he gets a good grade!
