The Internet Celebrates The Game Boy's Birthday

By Brian Ashcraft on at

On April 21, 1989, the Game Boy first went on sale in Japan. This year marks the handheld’s thirtieth anniversary. And this weekend, the internet was more than happy to celebrate.

The Game Boy went on to spawn several iterations including the Game Boy Color, the Game Boy Advance and the Game Boy Micro. It was also home to some of the best games of all time.

Using the tagline #ゲームボーイ30周年 (Game Boy’s 30th Anniversary), people posted photos of their collection, fan art, and more.
