The Game Boy micro[1] is Nintendo's second redesign of the Game Boy Advance. It was released in late 2005 and marketed towards the "image conscious" consumer, with emphasis placed on its small size and sleek design. It was available for $19.99 in most stores.

The Game Boy micro was not as successful as Nintendo hoped it would be. This is commonly attributed to the fact that the console was released after the Nintendo DS, which not only included more advanced features, such as Wi-Fi and true 3D graphics, but itself contained a port to play Game Boy Advance games.
