About us

Retro Modding is a North American online store developing and distributing all the parts needed to repair and mod handheld consoles.

Proud of years of expertise, we create, manufacture, and produce our own line of replacement parts, including shells for the original Game Boy, start-select silicon pads, USB-C battery packs for GBA, Game Boy cartridges, and even Neo Geo MVS Cartridges (yes, we don’t always work on handhelds)!

In search of offering better services and products, we merged in 2016 with Canadian Game Boy modding pioneers ASM, leading Retro Modding to be one of the oldest online modding stores. In 2021, we were proud to introduce Neptune: the first-ever Marble cast Game Boy Shell.

A subsidiary of Retro Modding, Incube8 Games was launched in 2021 with the aim of facilitating the publishing of retro video game cartridges, mainly for 8-bit handheld consoles. Supported by Retro Modding’s expertise and supply chain, Incube8 Games offers turnkey publishing solutions for physical releases from the custom cartridges and PCBs to the boxes and games manuals. Their first published game was Genesis, now Incube8Games is totalling 9 published games:
Genesis, Pine Creek, Deadeus, The Year After, The Machine, Magipanel, IndestructoTank!, Wing Warrior, and Gunship.
Incube8 Games is currently working on an unpublished 2000s Game Boy Color game: Infinity.
