Retro-Bit announces Super Retro Boy

This unique design will bring you back to old school gaming and will do so while playing cartridges from back in the day as well.

Before you get your hopes up, the Super Retro Boy does not come pre-loaded with any games, à la the NES Classic.

The new model also featured four buttons, compared to the Game Boy's two.

Experts have given their verdict on the Super Retro Boy after a hands-on demonstration at CES 2017.

The Verge wrote that the Super Retro Boy prototype was just as chunky as the original Game Boy.

The Super Retro Boy has four face buttons, namely the traditional A and B, plus L and R buttons that are similar to the shoulder buttons on the Game Boy Advance. The placement may prove a bit awkward for a few games, but to us it feels like a pretty small compromise given all the other benefits of the new console. Rather the hardware has captured the soul of the Game Boy while making some improvements, like a 10-hour internal battery and a backlit display. It also has a TFT high resolution screen for a great gaming experience. There are also upcoming cartridges for the Super Retro Boy for gamers who no longer have their old games. The handheld is set to arrive in the USA some time in August 2017. It is not a straight design copy of the original Game Boy but it can play original Game Boy, Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance cartridges.

Arguably the most popular handheld console from yesteryear, the Game Boy is vivid in a lot of gamer's memory, being one of the first handhelds they probably owned.

The Super Retro Boy is set to cost $79.99 when it launches in the U.S. this August.
