Ahh, the good old days—grandma cookin up frozen chicken cutlets, me sitting in my pajamas leafing through Nintendo Power where the mere mention of the Famicom was like spotting a unicorn. What was this famous precursor to the NES? Would I ever own one? Did Mario look different in far-off Japan?

"The Special 20th Anniversary Edition Game Boy Micro is an anniversary present to millions of Nintendo fans, who 20 years ago single-handedly built this entire industry," says George Harrison, Nintendo of America's senior vice president of marketing and corporate communications.
