If made into an actual product, the design appears to allow players access to the tactile D-pad and A & B buttons that were once hard-wired into the handheld-addicted sense memories of gamers of a certain age.
The patent, spotted by the folks at Siliconera, is for a touchscreen device case with functional physical buttons, which would emulate GameBoy inputs via touchscreen commands, and features a clear section on the screen's case where the game would be displayed. Judging from the button placements, this smartphone shell might be used to play games for the original Game Boy. There is a cutout or a window of sorts on the top portion of the case which most likely is there for you to view the gameplay on the screen in that portion.
Based on the images provided, the case would open like a book, with the front cover serving as the face of the Game Boy.
However, there's another aspect to the Switch's capacity to play games originally developed for other platforms, the ability to play mobile games on the big screen.
Unfortunately, there's now no word on a release date for the Game Boy case, or which smartphone models will be compatible with the design when it launches. Towards the bottom, you can see familiar action buttons, and the navigation buttons same as what you would find on the Game Boy. While the case itself would be cool for retro gaming fans, another bit of good news is that this patent should mean Game Boy games are on the mobile roadmap for Nintendo. Simply purchase the case, place your phone inside and download an app, which will take the form of a Game Boy emulator.
Whether there's enough good ones to justify what is probably going to be quite an expensive smartphone case remains to be seen though.
