Variations

Game Boy Advance SP

Game Boy Advance SP - Cyan Model

Game Boy Advance SP

Game Boy Advance SP is an upgrade to the Game Boy Advance. It had a new design, with a clamshell style, and had a front-and-back-lit screen. It also came with a rechargeable battery, instead of having to put in double AAs. It is also backwards compatible, able to play Game Boy and Game Boy Color games.

Game Boy Micro

Game Boy Micro - Grey Model

Game Boy Micro

Game Boy Micro is the Game Boy Advance's third design. Key differences include:

  • a rectangular-shaped body that resembles an NES controller. Just like the controller, it features a D-pad on the left side and two circular buttons on the right side.
  • a backlight for low-light and night-time play
  • the smallest screen size in the lineup
  • not backwards compatible with Game Boy and Game Boy Color titles

Until the dimensions and masses can be officially confirmed for the Game & Watch product line, the Game Boy Micro remains as Nintendo's smallest and second lightest handheld system ever produced. (In fact, the Pokémon Minis product line features only one entry that has a lighter handheld system). The measurements are:

  • Length: 101 mm (3.98 in.)
  • Width: 50 mm (1.97 in.)
  • Height: 17.2 mm (0.68 in.)
  • Volume: 86.86 cm3 (5.30 in.3)
  • Mass: 80 g (2.82 oz.)
  • Density: 0.921 g/cm3

Pokémon Minis

Since no official dimensions and masses are given for Pokémon Pikachu, Pokémon Pikachu 2: GS, and Pokéwalker, these handhelds cannot be compared with the Game Boy Micro to receive the title of Nintendo's smallest and lightest handheld system ever produced. The only exception is Pokémon Mini, for which sufficient information exists, officially making it Nintendo's second smallest and lightest handheld system ever produced. The measurements are:

  • Length: 74 mm (2.91 in.)
  • Width: 58 mm (2.28 in.)
  • Height: 23 mm (0.91 in.)
  • Volume: 98.72 cm3 (6.02 in.3)
  • Mass: 70 g (2.47 oz.) (with a Game Pak and AAA batteries inside)
  • Density: 0.709 g/cm3
