Super Retro Boy in the works, will play all Game Boy era titles

Jason Clement

We've had our fair share of third-party-developed retro consoles over the past few years (such as Hyperkin's Retron 5), but surprisingly not as many retro handhelds. That's about to change, however, with the Super Retro Boy from Retro-Bit.


This Game Boy throwback is set to play all Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance games; has a TFT HD scratch-resistant screen; a 10-hour battery life; four action buttons; and a 10-in-1 game cartridge (no details on what will be on the game cartridge just yet).


The concept image makes it look pretty sleek, so color me intrigued by this, but it should be noted that there are no 'L' and 'R' buttons (or anything replacing them on the shoulder area), which GBA games often use. It's likely that these buttons were mapped to the two extra action buttons that were added to the unit, but even so, it may make for awkward controlling when playing games that require L and R use.


Retro-Bit is aiming to release the Super Retro Boy in August for a targeted price of $79.99.
