The Original Game Boy Is Making A Comeback

Ultra Game Boy

According to Gizmodo, the device features all of the classic Game Boy controls that you remember, but with a few upgrades.

The limited-run NES Classic Edition arrived in November 2016, a miniaturized version of its 1983 ancestor that came with a fixed roster of 21 games - enthusiasts quickly discovered how to boost that number through file transfer ingenuity.

The original Game Boy sold 119 million units before it was discontinued in 2003 and is the third best-selling games console of all time.

Based on reports from CES 2018, the Ultra Game Boy will function more or less like Nintendo's original 1989 system. But it's not clear yet if it will provide emulator-style benefits like Super Game Boy color palettes, save states, and the ability to save ROM images of your actual cartridges.

The console features a back-lit LCD display, meaning users can play in the dark without needing to fit a classic Game Boy "snake-light". And hopefully, you still have your old Game Boy cartridges laying around-the Ultra Game Boy won't have built-in games, since it isn't an official Nintendo product.

US Senator Questions Apple Over iPhone Slowdown Controversy
We've now extended that feature to iPhone 7 with iOS 11.2, and plan to add support for other products in the future. In essence, the more a phone's battery was damaged, the slower it would perform in order to conserve battery power.

This can be switched off if you really want the authentic Game Boy experience of tilting it away from the glare of the sun.

Retro gaming consoles already have a massive presence in the tech world, as the unbelievable demand for things like the NES Classic and the SNES Classic has proven. Hyperkin is reportedly planning to release the Ultra Game Boy by late summer of this year for a price point under $100.

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.

Instead, this is simply the best possible version of the Game Boy you'll ever put your hands on.
