About the WORK

CRYSTAL RELIC 002 is a strikingly realistic remake of Nintendo‘s first handheld console, down to the D-pad, power button, “GAME BOY” branding below the screen and legal jargon on the rear. The translucent item even comes with a matching Super Mario Land cartridge, boasting artwork that neatly mirrors the cover of Mario’s first portable console outing. Further distinguishing CRYSTAL RELIC 002 from its predecessor, the removable cartridge is the first item in the series to boast two interlocking parts. (Source)
