Games nostalgia is big business, whether it’s old consoles or games from the 20th century, but none are quite as big as this whopping great Game Boy.

Ilhan Unal is a 21-year-old student and softwear developer from Brussels, Belgium, and he’s created the world’s largest version of a games device that made its name as a handheld.

Well, it’s not handheld any more.

However, in a large enough room, this colossal creation is a masterpiece – and don’t worry about the availability of massive game cartridges, this device can play any original Game Boy game.

“The Game Boy was a huge part of many people’s childhood, including my own,” Ilhan said.

“I was obsessed with my Game Boy as a kid, so I wanted to create something that would put a smile on little Ilhan’s face, and hopefully on the face of anyone who is a big kid at heart.”
