The iconic Nintendo Game Boy made its debut in Japan back on April 21, 1989, and this year marks its 30th anniversary. Over the years, the Japanese gaming company perfected its craft, releasing the Game Boy Color in November 18 of 1998, quickly followed by the wide-screened Game Boy Advance in June of 2001. Two years later, the GBA was succeeded by the Game Boy Advance SP, solving a problem many encountered when playing with the handheld console in brighter conditions with its all-new backlit screen. Finally, on September 19 2005, Nintendo released the last iteration of the Game Boy with the Micro, a pocket-sized throwback design with a retro aesthetic.

Honoring the Game Boy family, many fans took to Twitter with the hashtag #ゲームボーイ30周年 (Game Boy’s 30th anniversary) to celebrate this legendary handheld with fan art and photos of their very own collections. Take a look at the tweets below for the Game Boy series in all its nostalgic, pixelated glory.

And in other gaming news, Fortnite just teased another crossover with Marvel for the upcoming Avengers: Endgame.
