LAS VEGAS (WTHR) - Another classic gaming system is getting ready for a return to store shelves.

"Ultra Game Boy," a 21st century take on Nintendo's Game Boy, was introduced this week at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. A company called Hyperkin is developing the hand-held gaming device.


According to Gizmodo, the device has an aluminum housing, rather than the plastic case of the Game Boy of old, but keeps the classic buttons you remember.

For now, the console will only play classic Game Boy cartridges.

Hyperkin says the Ultra Game Boy will hit stores late this summer (possibly with a new name) and will retail for under $100.
