    Not content to leave the Pokemon Go action to those with modern smartphones, one modder is working to bring a version of the hit game to a much older, stranger, and more niche piece of hardware.
    Pokemon Go VMU is being developed by modder guacasaurus_mex, and as the name suggests, it's an attempt to bring Pokemon Go to the Dreamcast's Visual Memory Unit, or VMU (via Ars Technica). Being an accessory for a '90s video game console, there are some necessary changes being made, such as not working off of GPS.

    Instead, the game works off of a randomly generated grid that you'll navigate to track down Pokemon, according to an Instagram post. Once you find one, you can throw Poke Balls by taking part in a "timing-based mini-game."
    Pokemon Go VMU remains in development and will release in 2017. The wait is, as guacasaurus_mex puts it, "because I'm lazy and it's going to take forever to draw all those damn Pokemon."
    If you're looking for something to play on your VMU in the meantime (this has to be true of someone, right?), guacasaurus_mex offers other games on Instagram, including Flappy Bird VMU and Street Race VMU. Or if you're looking for more ways to enjoy Pokemon Go, you can head to select Target stores to stand next to a giant Poke Ball.
