Game Boy Launch Titles

Game Boy Launch Titles

30 years is a long time, especially in gaming, so although we all may remember the original Game Boy and its successors, who can remember which games were released on the very first day?

Well, as it just so happens, we do! So feast your eyes on the launch titles for the Game Boy, the Color and the Advance.

Game Boy

The Japanese launch of the Game Boy was just four titles:

  • Alleyway
  • Baseball
  • Super Mario Land
  • Yakuman

Whereas the North American launch included two more:

  • Tennis
  • Tetris

Unfortunately, the European launch was missing Tennis, despite Wimbledon being in England - but that’s beside the point.

Game Boy Color

The Color saw a meagre three titles released in its specially designed clear carts:

  • Pocket Bomberman
  • Tetris DX
  • Wario Land II

But at least they were available in all territories alongside the handheld!
