Retro-Bit announces Super Retro Boy

However, with the proliferation of technology, more advanced handheld gaming devices started to pour in and with that Game Boy was officially retired. No official color variants were announced yet, so for those who still own old Game Boy cartridges, you can still use them playing this new console in town.

One company identified as Retro-bit has revealed another retro-style console called Super Retro Boy.

The new model also featured four buttons, compared to the Game Boy's two. It still looks and behaves very much like a Game Boy, but is able to accept cartridges from the original Game Boy, Game Boy Colour AND Game boy Advance.

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.

The Super Retro Boy will be priced at $80 when it launches in the United States this summer. The screen has also been enhanced and looks sharp.

Retro-Bit told The Verge that the Super Retro Boy will be bundled with a 10-in-1 game cartridge, though we don't yet know which games will be included.

Experts have given their verdict on the Super Retro Boy after a hands-on demonstration at CES 2017. This is expected to be released on August, and it makes gamers long for that nostalgic gameplay that the Super Retro Boy can offer. The handheld is set to arrive in the USA some time in August 2017.
