These Pokemon Red and Blue SNES cartridges sure are sleek

It might not be practical, but it’s so dang cool

Every day on the internet is a chance to see talented people leverage their creativity in wonderful ways. I mean, there’s a whole bunch of utter garbage out there, too, but allow me to look on the bright side, if only for a few moments. This project — a pair of custom Pokemon Super Nintendo cartridges, one for Red, and one for Blue — turned out brilliantly.

Hats off to the creator, Matthewmods, who also does fancy Game Boy mods.

As shared on Reddit, these cartridges are functional and authentic, which means they were a pain to assemble and aren’t exactly cost effective. According to Matthewmods, the Pokemon SNES carts “use the internals of a Super Game Boy cart, with a clock speed fix chip and a link port added so that you can actually trade Pokemon via link cable, and authentic Pokemon boards with new batteries installed.” The labels are custom.

If these cartridges were mass-produced (and didn’t need to absorb all of that finicky original hardware), I’d be all over them. What a cool project and great result.
