It sounds like Nintendo has a lot of catching up to do now, but the one thing Hyperkin's classic console will be missing is built-in games.

There might be one detail that prevents people from buying up the Ultra Game Boy with the fervor we saw with the SNES Classic: Gizmodo points out that it won't feature pre-installed games.

Hardware manufacturer Hyperkin is working on a special edition of the Nintendo Game Boy tentatively referred to as the Ultra Game Boy.

Shown to Gizmodo at CES 2018, the Ultra Game Boy mimics the form and function of Nintendo's hit 1990s handheld. If you want an authentic Game Boy experience though, you can turn off the backlight altogether.

In the game, the child-emperor is being manipulated by a tyrant, Dong Zhuo, who exerts an oppressive rule over China. Three heroes, sworn to brotherhood in the face of tyranny, rally support for the trials ahead.

Hyperkin is looking to bring back the beloved Game Boy this summer.

It's impossible to count how many hours we spent (wasted) blowing air into cartridges, swapping games, and charging up that little lad who actually had a surprisingly long battery life considering.

It's still in the development stages, and isn't an official Nintendo Game Boy, but it's modelled off the classic Game Boy, is handheld, and uses all your old game cartridges.

It has an aluminium body, a backlit LCD, 6 hour battery life, USB C charging, stereo speakers and it's aiming to be sold at less than $100 United States dollars. Stereo audio is another big feature on the Ultra GB, which was implemented with Chiptune musicians in mind. But an outside company, Hyperkin, is making the next-best thing: its own retro version of the Game Boy, as fidgety and pixelated as you remember it, called the Ultra Game Boy. "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 cartridge". With the NES and the SNES Classic Mini proving immensely popular, it's unsurprising that fans are wondering which classic console will be re-released next. This bad boy plays every original Game Boy game, retains the original's contrast and volume dials.and it has a built in backlit display.
