Description

The Game Boy Micro is a handheld game console developed and manufactured by Nintendo. It was first released in September 2005 as a smaller, lighter redesign of the Game Boy Advance. The system is the last console in the Game Boy line, alongside the AGS-101 model of Game Boy Advance SP. Unlike its predecessors, the Game Boy Micro lacks backward compatibility for Game Boy and Game Boy Color games.

According to Nintendo of America vice president George Harrison, the idea for a smaller version of the Game Boy was first discussed in 2004. Harrison explained that unlike the traditional console development process, Nintendo was always thinking about new ideas for the Game Boy, describing it as a “continuous process of invention”. Developed under the code name “Oxy”, the company tried many ways to see how small they could make the Game Boy, opting for a metallic casing that, according to Nintendo Co. Ltd president Satoru Iwata, was “unusual for Nintendo”.

The Game Boy Micro was announced by Nintendo of America’s vice president of sales and marketing, Reggie Fils-Aimé, at the company’s Electronic Entertainment Expo press conference on May 17, 2005. The system was released in Japan on September 13, 2005 and in North America on September 19, 2005.[7] It was released in Europe on November 4, 2005 and Australia on November 3, 2005. It was released in China as the iQue Game Boy Micro on October 1, 2005, and later released in South Korea on November 9, 2005.
