Ultra Game Boy handheld console in the works

A New, 3rd-Party Game Boy is Being Made The Gameboy Is Making A Comeback

Unlike other recent Nintendo console remakes, the gadget won't come with games pre-installed. It's a little hard to imagine a world in which Nintendo doesn't one day roll out a "classic" release of Game Boy, the king of the handheld gaming world for decades.

Hyperkin, a company well-versed in making peripherals and replacement parts (including various Game Boy accessories) for gamers, just rolled out what they're calling the "Ultra Game Boy" at the Consumer Electronics Show.

Nintendo has spent the last couple of years manufacturing miniaturized versions of classic games consoles.

That now seems set to change, as Gizmodo reports from CES on the Ultra Game Boy, an aluminum-cased portable console that resembles the slimmer Game Boy Pocket more than the bulky 1989 original system.

Valentine wouldn't speak to whether police have identified any suspects or persons of interest, but said no suspect is in custody. The sheriff's department also said the friend is not a suspect at this time.

Nintendo has discovered that remaking its old consoles is a licence to print money but has presumably left the Game Boy in the "to do" pile to be tackled once the company finishes counting all its Switch money. "That backlight can also be turned off, if you want a truly authentic, squinty, Game Boy experience".

This isn't Hyperkin's first foray into Game Boy nostalgia. Stereo audio is another big feature on the Ultra GB, which was implemented with Chiptune musicians in mind. Though it's certainly recognisable as a Game Boy (actually it reminds us more of the compact Game Boy Color design than the original Game Boy), it improves on it in a few different ways. This bad boy plays every original Game Boy game, retains the original's contrast and volume dials.and it has a built in backlit display.

Hyperkin is planning to launch the Ultra Game Boy (definitely not its final name) before the end of the summer for a price point under $100. With the NES and the SNES Classic Mini proving immensely popular, it's unsurprising that fans are wondering which classic console will be re-released next.

If you're interested in the Ultra Game Boy, you'd better start looking for your old games right away.
