The Did You Know Gaming YouTube channel looks deeper into the legacy of the Game Boy line of handhelds.

Last week the channel looked at the original Game Boy, and this week it is looking at the Game Boy Color and the Game Boy Advance. You'll learn surprising details like before the announcement of the Game Boy Advance, Nintendo hinted at cellphone and modem compatibility for the device, but it never saw fruition. You also see strange add-ons like the Game Boy sewing machine, and a sonar pitched to fisherman for finding fish underwater using the Game Boy.
