The Nintendo Game Boy Celebrates Its 30th Anniversary Today


Quote:
The Nintendo Game Boy was first released on this day 30 years ago in Japan, then North America three months later, and lastly in Europe, nearly a year after.

The Game Boy launched 30 years ago today in Japan in 1989 and since then, this little pocket-rocket went on to sell well over 100 million units, allowing gamers all over the world the freedom to play their favorite games – including Tetris, Super Mario, and Pokémon. Having this new-found freedom meant that Game Boy owners could play whenever and wherever they wanted which completely revolutionized the video-game era.

The Game Boy combined features from both the NES home system and Game & Watch hardware and went on to create several models that include The Game Boy Pocket, Game Boy Light, Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance, Game Boy Advance SP, and Game Boy Micro. The Game Boy started it all with playing on the go and planted a firm path that made way for the likes of the DS, 3DS, and the Switch that we are lucky to own today.
