We remake old console hardware and parts for the new age
Starting with a concept through to final design, mastering and composition, we continuously create an expanding library of artwork for the consoles we cherish.
All artwork is designed by RetroSix. This is not a licenced product, and we have no affiliation with the original creator.
The front shell has been professionally hand printed on a UV printer for a durable finish and a splash of unique style! Please note this does not include the buttons.
Only the front half of the shell contains the U.V Printed design the rear of the shell matches the original shell colour the print was printed onto.
The fit, feel and tolerance on the RetroSix ABS shell is better than the original and the plastic is much stronger and free of any detects like those you get on injection-moulded shells.
After great success of our first mould, we spent a further £8,000 and made a new mould, perfecting the start/select buttons, opening out the window and altering the inside structure so that IPS screens can simply drop in with no modification whatsoever! Simply place your IPS screen in and push it to the top right (when looking down inside the shell installing the screen) to perfectly centre it. For a professional fitting we sell a 3D bracket to hold the LCD in position.
The front shell has an extra wide window opening, and inside has the wall reduced by the A/B/Start/Select buttons reduced, along with all other requirements to allow the IPS screen kits to simply drop into place.
Once you compare our shell with all the others on the market you will never look back!
The kit comes with the front and back shell and U.V printed glass lens.
Purchase your desired buttons and rubber contact pads separately to make your perfect complete console. If you require a USB-C console back then this will also need to be purchased seperately.
NOTE: Shell can still be used for regular GBAs without IPS screens. Just purchase regular sized screen or requested one printed in the order notes and be aware of having to position/secure the original screen down centred in view due to the opening being larger than normal.
RetroSix is a small team of people who have been in the gaming industry and retail business since 2013, and sold consoles, controllers and even designed our own controllers and consoles.
Putting that expertise to good use, we decided to start RetroSix; a small team of people passionate about retro gaming, and restoring original consoles to like-new, adding our own twist and style to them and in general bringing a modern twist to retro.
Experience the nostalgia without the limitations of old and outdated hardware.
So many things these days are mass produced, not designed to last, and make as cheap as possible for as much money as possible. We started RetroSix not as a mass market business, instead with the aim of perfection. Recreating moulds of original shells, casting them from quality ABS, redesigning hardware such as power supplies, USB-C, audio and more, to upgrade your consoles to the highest quality available. No cheap junk sold for profit.
All restoration work, modifications, improvements and so on are done in the UK, in-house by hand and all attention to detail and care is taken for every order. You can be assured that your order has been inspected not only by a real person but someone who knows about and is excited by gaming and retro, and no sub-par product leaves our doors.
In 2020 we partnered with Hand Held Legend in the USA, HIMITSUNOVA in Japan and Perth Retro Gaming in Australia. In 2021 we partnered with RetroReiZ in Germany and The Retro Game Corner in Ireland. We believe partnering with other likeminded companies is a great way to help each other out and ultimately make products that are better for the end consumer. Check them out at
