The Game Boy Color is the successor to the Game Boy. It has a similar shape as the Game Boy, but it is lighter and capable of showing multiple colors. It had the shortest lifetime of a Nintendo handheld, as it was discontinued in 2003. It is 8-bit, like the Nintendo Entertainment System and Game Boy.

The Game Boy Color itself had Wario Land II as a launch title in Japan and Game & Watch Gallery 2 worldwide.
