Game Boy Camera

Released in 1998, the Game Boy Camera is capable of taking 128px by 112px, black & white digital images using the 4-color palette of the Game Boy system. The camera can hold up to 30 images in it’s internal memory.

Here at yokoi we carry the full line of Game Boy cameras. Before one is put out for sale we:

  • Replace the battery to ensure you never lose any of your precious photos. 
  • Clean the lens to make sure you get the best possible photo.
  • Clean the cart contacts to make sure it will load up when you need it.
  • Throughly test it by taking selfies that we delete so no one ever sees them.


The best way to learn all the tricks of using the Game Boy camera is by reading the Funtography Guide put out by Nintendo Power. I’ve always wanted a copy of it but it’s fairly rare and expensive but the next best thing is a high quality scan of it, that I happen to have for you here.

Back in the day the only way to get your photos off the camera was to print them on the Game Boy printer. Thankfully you have other options today.

  • BitBoy – this one of the first device to emulate the Game Boy printer and allows you to save your photos to a microSD card. It’s a bit pricey but works well.
  • ElSnappo – by the legendary BennVenn does basically what the BitBoy does but at less than half the price. It is a bit less polished though.
