portable Wii console

It is fun to mod video game consoles. Whether one is modding a Game Boy into a giant console or turning the Nintendo 64 into a portable, it’s always interesting to see the steps taken to produce these results. Therefore, it is equally intriguing to see someone create a portable Wii console. YouTuber StonedEdge did just that, smashing a Wii into a tight Game Boy Advance SP case and crafting the Wii SPii Portable.

I would love to get my hands on a portable Wii if the modder accepted commissions

Feast your eyes upon StonedEdge’s creation below:

While it’s clear concessions had to be made in the transition (no waggle controls), this is still a neat project. It took almost a year to create, though, so it sounds like it was a struggle.

StonedEdge uses a microSD card with ROMs in order to load games. Joysticks are actually analog Switch Joy-Con and buttons are custom made.

We get some footage of Mario Kart Wii in motion. The speakers are a bit loud and the layout cramped, but the game runs smoothly. If you can get past the tiny screen, this is a legitimate way to play some Mario Kart. I’d certainly give it a shot.

Enthusiasts, what are your thoughts on this portable Wii console? Let us know in the comment field below.
