Hardware Hack: Donkey Kong Style Game Boy Advance SP Custom Case

The name Vadu Amka shouldn’t be all that new to too many people reading this, after all he did create a special Sega Genesis/Mega Drive hardware mod that was pretty popular. Now, Vadu Amka has taken to modding the Game Boy Advance SP from Nintendo into a true work of art- Donkey Kong art that is.

This is not a color mod for the Game Boy Advance SP but a whole new hand created case. Vadu Amka has taken great pains to recreate a mockup that Nintendo used to celebrate Donkey Kong Country 2 coming to GBA:

This GBA hardware mod features the hand crafted case but also bamboo for the hinge and cross pad. This is a true work of art and something that should be celebrated.
