Behold the holy grail of Game Boy DMG Shells. The Game Boy DMG Prestige IPS Ready Shell Kit is designed specifically for the ultimate Game Boy DMG build.


The fit, feel, and tolerance of the RetroSix ABS shell is better than the original. The buttons are stronger with newer ABS and more accurate molds than the original, the buttons and triggers are ultra-responsive, the plastic is much stronger and free of any detects like those you get on injection-molded shells.

Our shells are drop-in so IPS screens can simply dropped in with no cased modification whatsoever! Simply place your IPS screen in central (use our IPS bracket for perfect alignment). Additionally, the battery compartment allows for a drop-in fit of the CleanJuice XL without any cutting required.


To clean the Pearl shells use a clean white microfiber cloth and solvent of your choice. When using a colored microfiber cloth, the solvent can dissolve the dye and stain your shell.

I'm very happy with the ips gameboy dmg shell! Its on a different level. It makes the gameboy dmg look like a new and modern hand held console. I suggest it to everyone who wont to refurbish their old gameboy dmg. I love it! ❤️

Yellow color-matches pokemon

I didn't end up using this shell in my build, but it seems well-made and had all the metal parts included, which is nice. I'm mostly reviewing the color - it's a very good match for the vintage Pokemon Yellow cart I have (see photo).

Great Shell

Wonderful shell only issue I had was most likely my fault. Ended up having one of the screws for the back shell strip out. Other than that was a fantastic product, loved the fact it is IPS ready so I did not need to trim anything for the screen also helped it was ready for the Cleanjuice XL rechargeable battery mod as well. Feels great in the hand as well.

Best budget case

Just restored and ips swapped my gameboy, shell feels much nicer than the original. Screws leave something to be desired but other than that no complaints.

Fantastic. Could use a few more details though

Really spot on and high quality shell. Feels great. Looks great. Love how easy it makes the install for the rechargeable battery.
This was a serious upgrade to the beat up old shell I had for my GB.
Only downside was the missing text under the screen where it says Nintendo GAME BOY.
