Nintendo launched its state-of-the-art (for its time) handheld gaming apparatus back in 1989. It was a cassette based system. Its first game was Tetris and people bought Tetris, Gargoyle’s Quest, Metroid II: Return of Samus, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, and Kirby’s Dream Land 2 the most. Unique accessories to this gaming system included: the Game Boy Camera, the Game Boy Pocket Sonar, the Game Boy Printer, the Game Link Cable that allowed multiple Game Boys to connect for multiplayer use, the e-Reader, and the Super Game Boy Adapter that allowed users to play Game Boy games on the Super Nintendo gaming console.
