Video Game History: Game Boy Light

Game Boy Light Japan Nintendo

In Japan they got one version of the original Gameboy system we failed to recieve. It was called the Gameboy Light, and it featured a back-lit screen so you could play in the dark. A standard for any modern device, but it would take Nintendo until 2004 to have a true back-lit system with the Nintendo DS.

The GBA SP was front-lit but they did introduce a back-lit version in 2005.
