The Super Retro Boy Brings The Gameboy Back To Life

If you were a gamer kid that grew up in the 80’s or early 90’s, you most certainly have had a Game Boy of some sort. Maybe the OG one, the Game Boy Color or even the Game Boy Advanced – this portable gaming console was the accessory of choice for kids who wanted to catch them all back in the day.

And chances are you still have tons of those original cartridges lying around in your house. Well, for just $80 you can play those old classics again just like Nintendo intended via the Super Retro Boy, a new hand-held device to play cartridges made for the Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance.

Aside from adding a 2,500mAh rechargeable battery, scratch and shatter-resistant TFT HD display and two additional buttons that replicate the GBA’s shoulder buttons, the Super Retro Boy retains the original aesthetic that made the Game Boy so great. It’ll be hitting markets in America first, but we’re sure a lot of you are willing to order this baby online (or ask a relative to ship it back here) just to start playing with the original Pokemon.
