Artist modifies a Metroid-themed Game Boy Advance


Somehow Nintendo never released any Metroid-themed Game Boys in the U.S. But in case you were wondering what one might look like, Belgium artist Vadu Amka has you covered. 

According to Amka’s blog, he only works with damaged, retro consoles. Other incredible mods from the artist include: a Final Fantasy-themed Super Famicom, a Metroid-themed Game Boy Advance and Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages-themed Game Boy Color.

The unusual hobby of customizing classic gaming consoles has exploded over the past few years, with many artists selling personalize, made to order (and often expensive) customized classic game consoles. For many nostalgic artists, old game consoles provide the ideal surface to show off their creativity.
