Let there be light

Nintendo's Game Boy range was massively successful all over the world — heck, even Kurt Cobain had one — but not every variant of the system made it out of Japan.

Just before the launch of the Game Boy Color, Nintendo produced a revised backlit version of the original monochrome system which was exclusive to its homeland, and this has gone on to become one of the most collectable versions of the console.

We've already covered the system in one of our Hardware Classics pieces, but we don't need an excuse to show off our limited edition Tezuka Osamu World Shop Game Boy Light, so here's a video as well. Now all we need is the Astro Boy version which Apple co-founder Steve Woziack has, and we can die happy.
