A technological genius has created a portable way to play one of the greatest fighting/party games of all time: Super Smash Bros. Melee.

Jeff Longo created a portable system that can play the GameCube game Super Smash Bros. Melee on the go by using some modified Wii hardware and a custom case that resembles a GameCube controller with a decent-sized screen in the middle. Longo posted his creation on the Smash Bros. subreddit Wednesday and it blew up, understandably.

Here’s a video of the portable Melee system in action:

The portable Melee can be played with the system alone or it can support up to four GameCube controllers for multiplayer. The system can also be plugged into a CRT TV for some intense action on a bigger screen.

This is a dream come true for fans of Melee, many of whom have been clamoring for a rerelease or remaster of the 2001 GameCube game. The Nintendo Switch has recently given some people hope for a Melee rerelease, but for now this pint-sized custom console is the closest we’ve come to Melee on the Switch.

Longo shared his whole process of creating the custom console on BitBuilt, a forum and hub for people interested in the console customization hobby. He details everything he used to make the little machine, shares some photos, and shouts out some other fellow hobbyists who helped him along the way.

Now we just need Longo to start mass-producing these so we can all have a chance to enjoy them.
