With Apple recently unveiling new iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C, we all knew that a glut of new cases and other accessories would be hitting the market. While some cases are simply designed to help protect your phone, some are designed to protect your device and make a bit of a fashion statement. A company called Rocketcases has announced a line of cases supporting the iPhone 5S that old-school gamers should really appreciate.
The cases fall into the company’s Retro line and are designed to make your new iPhone look like an old-school portable game system or console controller. If you were around in the early days mobile gaming, you’ll recognize the original Nintendo Game Boy.
Anyone who grew up in the 80s will also recognize the case that makes the back of the iPhone 5S look like the original Nintendo controller. I spent many a summer day playing that original Nintendo console with that controller in hand. There are three Retro gamer cases available.
All three cases sell for $14.95 with the Game Boy Retro available in black or white colors. There’s only one Nintendo controller version available. If those old-school gamer cases don’t float your boat, the company also makes cases that look like cassette tapes from the 80s, boomboxes, VHS tapes, and more. if you want to know more about the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C, check out our official reviews of both devices.
