Celebrating Pokémon’s 20th anniversary, Game Freak’s Junichi Masuda looks back on the early days of developing Red and Green. It sounds like a tough time!
Anthony Thomas will take your old Nintendo DS, rip off its top screen, move the speakers, clean things up, paint it and turn it into something way cooler: a Game Boy Macro, an unofficial, over-sized brother to Nintendo’s actual (and wonderful) Game Boy Micro.
This cartridge certainly won’t fit into a Game Boy. But it looks really awesome!
Pokémon may be famously cheery, but the series has its share of dark, spooky myths. The most famous of those have got to be the ones about Lavender Town.
