Collection: Game Boy Advance

The GBA is part of the sixth generation of video game consoles. The original model does not have an illuminated screen; Nintendo addressed that with the release of a redesigned model with a front lit screen, the Game Boy Advance SP, in 2003. A newer revision of the redesign was released in 2005, with a backlit screen.

The Game Boy Advance shipped with a color LCD screen, a 32-bit bit CPU, and custom video hardware that could render games of comparable graphical and technical quality to (and sometimes slightly beyond) the earlier Super NES home console. As a result, the GBA received many ports of (and play-alike sequels to) Super NES-era games such as Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, and F-Zero.
