Nintendo secures handheld emulation patent

Wednesday, 18th April 2012 00:56 GMT By Brenna Hillier

The US Patents and Trademarks Office has granted Nintendo a patent it applied for in 2003 regarding the emulation of hardware bearing a built-in screen and accompanying software. The patent specifically mentions Game Boy titles, and the examiner took a good look at existing emulators before granting the patent. There’s nothing to suggest Nintendo will do anything with the patent besides sue the pants off everyone in sight, if that, but don’t be shocked if licensed Game Boy titles turn up on airlines some time in the future.

Thanks, Engadget.
