Pokémon Intro FMV Running on Game Boy Color

Posted by in News

I didn’t think it would be possible, but a developer by the name of Lior Halphon has managed to develop a tech demo ROM demonstrating how FMV (full motion video) can run on the original Game Boy Color. The demo features the Pokémon TV series intro video with chiptune music. The project is open source, you can view the original source code along with research notes here: https://github.com/LIJI32/GBVideoPlayer

Here is a video of the tech demo running on a real Game Boy Color:
