The Nintendo NES Classic Edition was a huge hit. It first came out back in November last year and has been sold out everywhere since. Till today, many consumers are still desperately trying to get their hands on the Nintendo Classic Edition.
With such great success of the Nintendo NES Classic Edition, it’s clear to see that people are still in love with Nintendo’s nostalgia. And it seems that Nintendo has picked this up and decided to push out another great follow up to the Nintendo NES Classic Edition. This time, Nintendo is bringing back the Game Boy.
The Game Boy was commercial success and had gone into retirement for more than a decade now. The newest nostalgia-console that Nintendo is planning to push onto production lines is called the Super Retro Boy.
Nintendo has clarified that although the Super Retro Boy looks very similar to the Game Boy, it is not Game Boy, so don’t expect any new Game Boy titles this 2016. However, the Super Retro Boy uses the same concept as the Nintendo NES Classic edition and makes it a whole lot better.
The Super Retro Boy is essentially an all in one Game Boy emulator. Unlike the NES Classic Edition, the Super Retro Boy will be able to play all Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance titles ever made. That’s a large library of retro games from three generations of Gameboy handhelds.
