    First color Nintendo portable system
    It was released nearly a decade after Nintendo's competitors released color portables.
    It was only out for a couple of years before its successor was released.
    A lot of its games were just colorized ports of the original Game Boy's titles.
    Besides being in color, its technical specs and graphics were roughly the same as the original Game Boy.
    Although it was its own system, many consider it continuation of the original Game Boy line.
    Nintendo released two similar 'Legend of Zelda' games for it on the same day, and you had to own both games to unlock many of their features, instead of just putting it all in one cartridge.
    It was the first successful color portable game system.
    Many of its games were playable on the original Game Boy, albeit in black and 'puke green.'
    It was the first portable system to feature backwards compatibility.
    Despite its relatively short lifespan, it has a vast library of great games.
    It was smaller, lighter and had a much longer battery life than other color portables, like the Game Gear.
