Back To The Basics! Hyperkin Is Working On A Game Boy Reboot

While Nintendo has had massive success with the launch of the NES and SNES Classic, its seems only a matter of time before they announce their next Classic console, and it's stands that there's a good chance we'll see a Gameboy Classic coming soon.

Hyperkin has teased what should be one of the most popular purchases of retro game fans this year, with their upcoming Ultra Game Boy (this name could change, but I love it).

Gizmodo was able to get its hands on the device, which Hyperkin is calling the Ultra Game Boy while in development, in Las Vegas at the electronics trade show.

Now the original Game Boy is making a comeback, 28 years later - with a new version made by tech firm Hyperkin. First of all, there's a third dial that allows you to adjust the backlit LCD display, which wasn't possible on the first several Game Boy models. That backlight can also be turned off, if you want a truly authentic, squinty, Game Boy experience.

Other new features include a built-in battery with a six-hour life span, a USB-C charging port, stereo speakers as well as right and left audio output connections. Why the improvements to the Game Boy's sound system when all of its classic games only generate mono sound? Today the word comes down that Hyperkin Is Working On A Game Boy Reboot. It can play all of your classic Game Boy games, and possibly even your Game Boy Color carts, but you'll have to supply all of the original cartridges (I can already hear their prices shooting up on eBay!).
