If you have seen Stranger Things 4 by now, you may have noticed a rather strange mention of “Americantendo”, the hypothetical 16-bit console mentioned by the character Argyle. Don’t worry if you haven’t seen it yet, that’s all the context we’ll provide here for fear of spoilers!
Well, Hyperkin went above and beyond and created a mock-up of what an Americantendo might actually look like if it were real. Both the console and controller are painted in the colors of the US flag, with the word “Americantendo” prominently highlighted right below the console’s cartridge slot.
It looks cool and disgusting at the same time, and we love It.
Now just to reiterate, just to be on the safe side: it’s not real. We won’t be seeing Americantendo on store shelves anytime soon, but the Hyperkin recreation is a fun take on what it could potentially look like nonetheless.
What do you think of Americantendo? Would you proudly place it in your living room? Let us know!
