As the world is gripped by Pokémon GO fever, you can't blame peripheral maker Hyperkin from leaping on the bandwagon in order to promote its forthcoming SmartBoy accessory.

The device connects to Android phones and allows you to load up original Game Boy cartridges and play them via emulation. Hyperkin's latest teaser for the SmartBoy has a clear message - soon you'll be able to play Pokémon on your phone the old-fashioned way.

The SmartBoy began life as a joke but is in fact the real deal. Hyperkin is currently seeking developer support to bring the device to market next year. The proposed price is $59.99.
