"STD? STD?! Who in their right mind would name their game company STD?!"
—The Nerd, Game Boy Accessories

STD was a Hong Kong[1] company who made the Handy Boy, featured in Game Boy Accessories, and an aftermarket controller for the Panasonic/GoldStar (now LG)/Sanyo 3DO, fit for Street Fighter.



  • STD most likely stood for something in Chinese, although it is more famously an acronym for Sexually Transmitted Disease, a broader term for infections such as gonorrhea and HIV/AIDS.
  • The company went out of business in 1995, after merging with Recoton; Recoton itself went bankrupt in 2001 shutting the company down for good.[1][2]
