Nintendo’s handheld classic Game Boy is part of countless people’s childhood memories, and some even grow up to spend a great deal just to buy various types of games for the sake of reminiscing.
A Japanese social media user, nicknamed Yan, often shares his family life on Twitter. One thing that makes his content different is his twin sons’ passion for DIY toys.
He recently posted a video of one of his sons playing on a handmade Game Boy, surprising even himself.
In the video, the son cut out a cardboard box cut into the size of a game boy, and the first level of the game screen for “Mario” was actually drawn by himself.
This is coupled with his own design for the background of the game. By scrolling the stationary images to the side and controlling his homemade avatar, it appears exactly like the Mario game of the old days, leading Yan to exclaim ” this is too spectacular!”

The post immediately resonated with Japanese social media users with some saying “I have one at home, but yours seems to be more fun.”
Others praised the child for his deftness at recreating the classic game many commented that they would happily buy the game should it go on the market.
