Although Super Smash Bros. For 3DS allowed you to take the Smash franchise on the go for the first time, we all know that it is not exactly what you will call a “best-came” scenario. But what if you really wanted to bring your Smash on the go?
Jefflongo from BitBuilt forums has an answer to that. By compacting the guts of a Wii into a portable form, he can essentially bring every Wii and GameCube game on the go.
While his machine is not exactly the thinnest contraption In the world, it does have all the bells and whistles to make it entirely functional. On top of all the traditional controls, it also have IR sensors for Wiimotes, an AV out, and a USB port to load games onto the diskdrive-less machine.
