SNES Handheld Coming Later This Year

Every now and again I'll look at Craigslist, eBay, whatever and see what SNESbundles run for. Why? I'd like to add the machine to my growing collection of consoles. Of course, when I think about a SNES under my TV, I don't think about a handheld device.
Enter Hyperkin's SupaBoy: a handheld SNES that plays all the classic cartridges you have lying around. The SupaBoycomes with every button you'd normally have on a SNES control pad plus a 3.5 inch LCD screen. Cartridges sit right in the back with the label for everyone looking over your shoulder to see.
A/V stereo-out and a rechargeable battery round out the package. What's better, the front of the device supports two SNEScontrollers for multiplayer and... you know... not hurting your hands.
Look, I'll cut the cynicism. It's neat that old-school systems like the SNESstill get attention. They damn well deserve it! Unfortunately, part of why you get a classic system is that it looks cool, it plays like it used to, and it shows you have taste. When did video games get to be so much like wine?
Anyways, the Hyperkin SupaBoy (God help us) doesn't have a release date yet, but it's very real. Hyperkinhas already released a Genesis and NES handheld, among all of their peripheral releases.
