Social Media Looks Back At The Game Boy On Its 25th Birthday

Game Boy

The Nintendo Game Boy was released on April 21, 1989 in Japan, and today marks the iconic handheld video game console’s 25th birthday.

One of the first devices of its kind, the now clunky machine allowed anyone to play video games on the go, and it sold around 25 million units by 1992.

Years later, Nintendo would launch the Game Boy Color, and a number of different devices up to the 3DS of today.

Currently a trending topic on Facebook, social media went old school to remember the world’s original favorite handheld video game console:

Combined with the Game Boy Color, to date Nintendo has sold around 120 million units worldwide, and continues to be the leader in handheld video gaming.
