Game Boy is Coming Back From the Dead

Retro-Bit has lifted the lid on its previously-announced Game Boy clone, the Super Retro Boy.

And sadly, from what it looks like Nintendo might have no plans to revive the portable console.

However, while Nintendo may have given up on the device, according to the latest developments, a company called Retro-Bit is working extensively to bring the Game Boy back from the dead.

In fact, the company has unveiled a new gaming device dubbed as Super Retro Boy that looks to be an upgraded version of the Game Boy. Design-wise, the Super Retro Boy resembles the classic original Game Boy we all know and love, and it also comes with a few modern day improvements such as 2,500 mAh rechargeable battery with 10-hour battery life and a shatter resistant TFT HD display.

Besides, the Super Retro Boy is essentially a clone of the original Game Boy. This handheld is able to play every original Game Boy game ever made. Apart from that, it can also play every Game Boy Color game and every Game Boy Advance title as well. In addition, the Super Retro Boy features an extra pair of buttons on the face, just below the standard A and B set which will facilitate Game Boy Advance titles.

The Super Retro Boy will be first released in North America in August 2017 and will be available at $79.99 (approximately Rs. 5,384)
