Game Boy Goes Retro

In June, Nintendo will go retro with its Game Boy Advance portable video game system. The company will release a collection of original Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) games for the system, as well as a new Game Boy Advance that will be styled similarly to the old NES game controller. Nintendo will release eight classic NES games—Donkey Kong, Pac-Man, The Legend of Zelda, Super Mario Bros, Excitebike, Ice Climber, Xevious, and Bomberman—which will sell for $19.99. Nintendo has a history of releasing Game Boy systems in different colors and will continue that theme with a new limited-edition Game Boy Advance SP styled just like the original NES controller. The system will be available for $99.99 beginning June 7.
