Super Retro Boy is nearly the 'Game Boy Classic' of your dreams

Super Retro Boy is nearly the 'Game Boy Classic' of your dreams

The most important feature of the Super Retro Boy is its ability to play original Game Boy cartridges, along with any cartridges for the Game Boy Colour and Game Boy Advance, meaning all of your old games will be compatible with the console.

The design is faithful to the original Game Boys, which means there is no way for players to plug it in to a larger screen.

Another retro-style console was launched by Retro-Bit, and it is called the Super Retro Boy.

It could be an ideal gadget for anyone with a stash of Game Boy cartridges gathering dust, so there's understandably plenty of excitement already. This is good news for retro gamers who managed to keep and take care of their old games. It's worth noting that this isn't created to be used as an emulator though - you'll need to use cartridges to play any games. Find out if the handheld gaming system is worth your $79.99.




Its D-pad is located at the opposite side of its AB smash buttons, so the similarities between the Super Retro Boy and the Game Boy were indeed noticeable. However, he is generally upbeat with everything else the handheld device has to offer. Other than that, owners will be able to play any original game cartridges from the Game Boy, Game Boy Colour, and Game Boy Advance. The unit looks like a regular Game Boy at a quick glance, but has four facebuttons, the upper two mimicks L/R when playing Game Boy Advanced titles. "It even lets you play all of those games with a slightly better resolution thanks to the device's enhanced LED screen".

Well, today we've got just the way to exactly that, The Retrobit Super Retro Boy.

According to Digital Trends, the Retro Boy has 10-hour battery life that is rechargeable using a micro-USB. "That's at least 8 AAs worth of Game Boy gaming". It had a plastic rectangular exterior that had the same familiar texture, although it is lighter.

I played five minutes of F-Zero: Maximum Velocity, and it ran well. The handheld is set to arrive in the U.S. some time in August 2017.
