Game Boy

Miyamoto's characters found new life on the Game Boy, the 8-bit handheld cartridge device first released in 1989. It pioneered future portable consoles like 1996's Game Boy Pocket, 1998's Game Boy Color and 2001's Game Boy Advance, and most recently the Nintendo 3DS. The Game Boy was invented by Miyamoto's biggest influence, late designer Gunpei Yokoi – who began working at Nintendo in 1965, when it was still a card company.
