The Game Boy is rapidly approaching its 30th anniversary - something we're celebrating right now by gathering your votes for the best Game Boy games - but that doesn't mean that we can't still get new games for the system.

Back in 2017, we shared the news of a brand new Game Boy release called Tobu Tobu Girl, an arcade-style platformer which received a very limited run of physical Game Boy cartridges (it was also offered online for free via emulation). Now, the original team is back in partnership with First Press Games with the aim of treating the game to a larger physical run - as well as giving it a Deluxe makeover.

This new release is hoping to follow in the footsteps of the likes of Zelda: Link‘s Awakening DX, essentially being an enhanced re-release with additional features and graphics optimised for the Game Boy Color, while still being fully backwards-compatible to the black and white classic system.


The physical release is already in the works - we're told it will have "manual print work, unique cartridge mouldings and high-quality circuit boards for the game itself, along with a dedicated package and manual design" - but the team is hoping to raise funds through Kickstarter to see it all happen. You can check out the crowdfunding campaign here if you're interested in learning more or pledging your support - it has 22 days to raise another €20,000 at the time of writing.
