Nintendo returned to E3 this year with a spectacular digital event where the Wii U was placed in the spotlight throughout the show. This particular show did a lot to solidify the relevance of the Wii U hardware and made me personally excited to buy one myself.
Today, April 21st 2014, marks the official twenty-fifth birthday of the original Nintendo Game Boy. This innovative and widely successful handheld console launched in Japan on April 21st in 1989. Combined with its successor; the Game Boy Colour, the system has sold a whopping 118.69 million units worldwide. Since then the Game Boy has gone through various redesigns and upgrades, eventually passing the handheld torch to the Nintendo DS. The Game Boy’s influence and legacy is strong and far-reaching to this day, and it will continue to be remembered and hold a dear place in gamers’ hearts for years to come.
