source: ign.comThe Game Boy is reborn once again, as Nintendo today announced the Game Boy Micro, a stylish (and surprisingly small) retooling of the Game Boy Advance. Measuring 4 inches wide, 2 inches tall and 0.7 inches deep; and weighing just 2.8 ounces, the silver-clad Micro is probably the slickest -- or at the very least, most portable -- Game Boy hardware yet. Better yet, it will play all the GBA and Game Boy games currently handled by the GBA SP.
In addition to the small size, the Micro features a 2-inch backlit screen, swappable front plates, and screen brightness adjustment. Like the SP, the Micro includes a built-in, rechargeable battery - in this case, Lithium Ion.
"We're making the gorgeous Game Boy Micro for image-conscious folks who love video games, the ones who want the look of their system to be as cool as the games they play on it," says George Harrison, Nintendo of America's senior vice president of marketing and corporate communications. "Because of its diminutive size and industrial-hip look, Game Boy Micro immediately identifies the person playing it as a trendsetter with discriminating style."
The Game Boy Micro is scheduled to ship this fall. We'll bring you even more on the system as more news comes in. Stay tuned.
