The 90s were awesome for most of the kids. One of the reasons why so many of us remember the 90s fondly is the growth of the gaming industry. Video games were no longer a weird niche for social outcasts – video games have become mainstream.
One of the most popular consoles during the 90s was the Super Nintendo, but those of us who couldn’t afford it had to “settle” for SNES’ older brother – NES.
Yes, the graphics and the sound weren’t as good on the SNES, but we didn’t mind, we were having fun. Both of the consoles were awesome, and we still like to spend some time playing Castlevania, The Legend of Zelda, and Super Mario Bros, even tho the games were released over 20 years ago.
It is no wonder that so many companies out there are trying to cash in on the nostalgia factor – nostalgia sells. If you are a Nintendo fan, you will be happy to know that you can now own a keyboard reminiscent of the good old SNES console.
Super nintendo entertainment system
Hyperkin Labs got the inspiration from the US version of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, which is a bit shame in our opinion, they could’ve also made a keyboard that looks like the Japanese version of the SNES.
The keyboard looks beautiful. The colors are bright, and they remind us of the look of the SNES. We are positive that many gamers around the world would love to own one, but some should think twice before making a purchase. The problem we have found with this keyboard is the fact that it doesn’t use Cherry MX switches. Hyperkin Labs have decided to use an imitation switch Gaote Blue, which is a shame because this could have been a perfect product.
Despite our minor annoyance regarding the switches used, this is a gorgeous looking keyboard, and every Nintendo fan would be glad to own it. If you have a loved one in your life who is a big Nintendo fan, think about getting them this beautiful keyboard. Purchasing this keyboard will set you back $100, but it will be worth it once you see the look on the face of the person receiving it.
