    Default Nintendo GameGirl ~ Does it exist?

    I seem to have lodged in my memory from ancient times, the image of a pink coloured GameBoy. Original design.

    Not unheard of, but this was a long time before they released the "Play It Loud" series of coloured GameBoy consoles...


    It was also distinct as it wasn't called a GameBoy ~ In fact, where the GameBoy logo *Should* have been, it actually said "GameGirl"

    I believe it was actually an official Nintendo release though, and not a dodgy pirate console or fake.


    I seem to remember a girl in my primary school class had one, yet I only ever laid eyes on it once... Could it perhaps have been a Japanese import??? :/

    I'll third the "I think that I have heard of this before."

    One a similar note, Nintendo did release this:


    I know that is not what you are talking about, but cool nonetheless.

    It was a hoax. If you subscribed to Digital Press, you would have known that already.

    I'll second that.

    An early edition of TOTAL! magazine mentioned something about a possible 'GameGirl'. If I remember, I'll dig it out tonight.

    I'm definitely certain Nintendo released a pink Game Boy Pocket here in Australia (and most likely other regions).

    It came packed-in with a Barbie game of some description - however, the handheld was still referred to as a Game Boy.

    I am pretty 97.5% sure that I remember seeing one in person, so can't be a hoax. It was back in 1990 / 1991, and the image of it has stuck in my mind ever since.

    It wouldn't be unheard of, as pointed out above, Nintendo have been known to release a girl orientated GameBoy recently...


    My memory isn't too great, but one thing that has stuck in my mind is the fact that the GameBoy was pink (A light pink, not the vibrant luminous pink that the later "Play It Loud" GameBoy's came in) and that it had distinctive "Nintendo GameGirl" written just below the screen...

    I've not managed to find a picture of a pink GB Monochrome yet, but I have tracked down some other examples of pink GameBoy's...


















    So much choice, so much pink! And to think that girls complain that video games are too masculine...

    One Barbie game for GB actually said to be made for the GameGirl System on the back of its box. What a joke. That one was released years before any non-gray Gameboys were released outside of Japan though

    I have the pearl pink GBA SP, imported from Japan. But it never was released in North America, was it? I think whoever said that the boxart with the girl and all came from a contest, is right. The Japanese box is just an ordinary Japanese square box in pink.

    It's possible that the "gamegirl" Game Boy was a pirate Game Boy...

    Maybe... It may have been a simple mod done by someone - When you're ten years old, you don't tend to remember such trivial details.

    I have never seen pirate GameBoy's before though... Do such things exist? Pictures please.

    Don't forget the candy pink DS.. my girlfriend picked up one while she was in Japan earlier this year.
