Nintendo have taken the widely successful Game Boy Advance SP, retooled it and added a dash of chic. The result? The Game Boy micro system, quite simply the smallest and sleekest Game Boy® product that Nintendo has ever created.
It's thinner than a mobile phone, as attractive as an MP3 player and as fun as a Game Boy.
The metallic Game Boy micro measures a mere 10cm wide, 5cm tall and 1.75cm deep, allowing it to sit comfortably alongside today's coolest tech gear. Amazingly, it weighs less than 80 grams, or about the weight of 80 paper clips. Yet Game Boy micro has the same processing power and plays the same games as Game Boy Advance SP models, complete with standard face controls and gleaming shoulder and Start/Select buttons that literally shine.
With Game Boy micro, everyone plays in style. The removable face plate gives owners the option to customise the look of their systems again and again with new colours and designs. Most notably, its 5cm backlit screen shines with incredible power, rendering games in startling clarity with fantastic colours on the best screen ever developed for a Nintendo handheld.
Game Boy micro will appeal to the image-conscious gamer. This is a unit that anyone will be comfortable pulling out at a bus stop, in a train or at the café. It’s so seductively small, it can fit into a jeans pocket.
Game Boy micro represents the latest evolution in the image of the Game Boy Advance line, but it is not a successor to any current system. Game Boy micro will sell alongside the Game Boy Advance SP. The system comes with a built-in, rechargeable lithium-ion battery and supports standard headphones.
