Retro-Bit announces Super Retro Boy

The Game Boy is back from the dead... kind of

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.

Lenovo Miix 720 and Active Pen 2 Revealed
Unlike the Surface, though, the keyboard is included with the Miix at its starting price of $999 (approximately AU$1,400 or £800). It's 14.6mm thick with the keyboard attached and weighs 1.1kg, although the tablet on its own is just 8.9mm and weighs 780g.

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.

Not everything is retro, however, and the four AA batteries from the original have been switched for a 2,500mAh re-chargable battery that is supposed to last for up to ten hours of gaming. He said it's all about video game console licensing.
