Game Boy Hitting Stores Across The Nation
The Game Boy left Nintendo of America’s warehouses on July 31, but now they have finally started appearing on store shelves across the country. This new video game system takes interchangeable cartridges, just like the NES, except they’re way smaller and can even fit in your pocket. They retail for about $20 a pop and the Game Boy unit is $90 and comes with a free copy of Tetris, the super addicting puzzle game that will keep your eyes glued to the tiny screen for hours at a time!
If you’re looking to pick up some extra games to play with the new system, you’ll have several to choose from, including: Alleyway, Baseball, Super Mario Land, and Tennis. We just got a chance to try out the system at a local Target and think this could easily be the biggest Christmas request from kids (and some adults) this year. We’ll have full reviews of many of the games soon, so stay tuned!
