Nintendo Game Boy gets a new and exclusive game 31 years after it was released in 1989, thanks to Green Boy Games and Kickstarter. In 2021, everyone and Mom’s sister’s fiancé Banana Slug may have a Nintendo Switch, Nintendo Switch Lite and games for them, but there are also some nostalgic gamers who will love a reason to break out of Nintendo Game Boy, one of the largest handheld consoles ever made. That said, it’s not often the 31-year-old, soon to be 32-year-old, nostalgic hardware gets a new game, but that’s exactly what it gets this spring. More specifically, and after a successful Kickstarter campaign, The Change of shape will release sometime this spring, and right now Nintendo Game Boy will be the only way to play it.
As Kickstarter notes, the developer has previously released several Nintendo Game Boy games, and just like them, this will be largely limited to physical cassettes to “keep the spirit alive”
When it comes to the game itself, you play as Elliot “an ordinary person” who goes to spend a weekend in the mountains with some friends. That said, the camping trip is quickly interrupted by a little elf asking for your help to save his world from a wizard. For this purpose, the elf gives you a special power: no matter what animal you touch, you become. However, the power lasts only until dawn, which means that you must achieve your goal before the sun rises.
If any of this sounds interesting to you, check out Kickstarter, which has already raised nearly $ 19,000, far more than the target of $ 7,304.
