In this episode, Did You Know Gaming takes a look at some facts, secrets, Easter eggs and history of Nintendo’s Game Boy Advance. The GBA was the follow up to the popular Game Boy system, and featured all of Nintendo’s hit franchises at the time, including Super Mario, The Legend of Zelda, Pokemon, and even Metroid. The system started it life as Project Atlantis, but had several iterations. The Game Boy Advance SP and Game Boy Micro were made later in the handheld’s life, and the console also had a private adapter to work with the Nintendo 64 (N64), and was emulated on the 3DS and Wii U, and will likely come to the Nintendo Switch. Through our analysis of the console’s development, GBA games and their gameplay and beta builds, we hope to show some of the more interesting facts from the making of the Game Boy Advance and have its history explained.

    If you really knew how advanced China and Japan are you would not consider gameboy to be the flagship but before Google and viable Linux community Asia had a lack of software to market personal computer to go face to face with Microsoft so Nintendo was the pride of the Japanese people and you can think Asia for the technology that makes your android/iPhone possible as if not for Nintendo then personal computing would not have evolved to the same efficiency as there would be no reason for Microsoft or some other guys to not bleed you dry for a boat anchor PC .

  14. Rajiv Kuntamukkala August 29, 2017 at 8:32 pm

    Today I was looking around my house and I somehow found just lying around my gameboy advance sp. There were no games and the battery pack was missing but it was still really cool.

  15. Steve Burnside August 29, 2017 at 8:32 pm

  20. Kacie Glass August 29, 2017 at 8:32 pm

    I like how they keep showing it backlight. While it isnt.

  21. Paul Harris August 29, 2017 at 8:32 pm

    The Metroid: Zero Mission game actually did implement a sleep mode via the pause menu.

  22. Gage Stricker August 29, 2017 at 8:32 pm

    2009??? I THINK THE DATE IS WRONG? THE DS CAME OUT IN LIKE 05 OR 06

  23. Farrsharp August 29, 2017 at 8:32 pm

    It's nice to see that Nintendo was willing to put in the effort to ensure backwards compatibility, a feature rarely seen in newer consoles

  24. ghoulgutter August 29, 2017 at 8:32 pm

    If only they could remaster or implement backwards compatible on the 3ds to play old GBA games

  25. thejunkmanlives August 29, 2017 at 8:32 pm

    Just to be a nitpicker about this, you can indirectly connect a GBA to a cellphone, but you have to use the Wireless adaptor to connect to a PC (like a Raspberyy Pi sized maker board, e.g. x86) and then connect that in turn to the cellphone.
