The Original Game Boy Is Making A Comeback

News Nintendo game boy A New, 3rd-Party Game Boy is Being Made

If it wasn't a Game Boy then you clearly weren't with it.

The original Game Boy is making a comeback 28 years after it was first released thanks to a stylish remake of the handheld console. The peripheral manufacturer is now working on an updated version of the classic Game Boy tentatively called the Ultra Game Boy. According to Gizmodo, Hyperkin's console is made of aluminum, has the same volume and contrast dials as the original and looks virtually identical to the Game Boy Pocket.

The retro gaming specialists at Hyperkin are back at it.

While Nintendo itself is not behind the Game Boy remake, the Japanese firm has recently released miniature versions of its classic Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) and Super NES (SNES) consoles. The company, if you recall, developed a Game Boy-like mobile accessory for Android smartphones after an April Fools' Day gag in 2015 generated far more attention than the company could have hoped for. First of all, there's a third dial that allows you to adjust the backlit LCD display, which wasn't possible on the first several Game Boy models.

While the console will be new and improved, with a six-hour battery, a USB-C port for charging, a pair of stereo speakers, and left and right audio-out connections, the publication insist that the iconic, classic gameplay will not be impacted. It will, instead, play all original Game Boy cartridges and possibly Game Boy Color carts as well.

Gizmodo reports that Hyperkin is creating a version of the original Game Boy that will cater to all of your early-2000s kid needs.

It's no secret that retro games are in fashion right now, which is consistently proven by homages to old-school games as well as the enormous successes of the NES and SNES Classic Editions.

Looking to be ready towards the end of Summer, the Ultra Game Boy is set to cost under $100, which could appeal to people with stacks of retro Game Boy cartridges.
