Nintendo GameBoy Advance Consoles
The GameBoy Advance (GBA) was a true second generation portable game console released by Nintendo in 2001 as the next successor and jewel in Nintendo’s GameBoy crown. The Nintendo GameBoy Advance boasts an array of enhancements over it predecessors including a 32-bit 16.8 MHz CPU, 32 kb RAM and a 240 × 160 pixel resolution colour screen.
The GBA also witnessed an aesthetic overhaul as the tried and tested winning portrait layout and design was not carried forward to the latest GameBoy incarnation. Instead the newest handheld console was landscape, with a D-pad to the left, action buttons to the right of the screen, rather than being underneath it where they’d been found in the past as, well as left and right shoulder buttons atop of the unit.
With an impressive collection of games to accompany the GameBoy Advance, the console excelled in the market. Titles such as Advance Wars, Super Mario Advance and Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire means the GameBoy Advance is a must-have for retro collectors and casual gamers alike. Not only did the Advance play host to some of the most innovative and creative games of the time, it had backward compatibility capabilities allowing GameBoy and GameBoy Color cartridges to be enjoyed all over again.
