Game Boy Micro is a handheld game console developed and manufactured by Nintendo. It was first released in September 2005 in the market. The system is the last console of the Game Boy line. The Micro is very small in size and has a sleek design.
The Game Boy Micro retains some of the functionality of the Game Boy Advance SP, but with an updated form factor. It is unable to play original Game Boy and Game Boy Color games, and is officially incompatible with the Nintendo e-Reader and some other peripherals due to design issues (the required Zilog Z80 chip is not included, as it was on the Game Boy Advance/SP). It is smaller than previous Game Boy systems. Additionally, it features a backlit screen with the ability to adjust the brightness so as to adapt to lighting.
