The '''Game Boy Color''' (Japanese: '''ゲームボーイカラー''' ''Game Boy Color'') is [[Nintendo]]'s 8-bit gaming handheld which succeeded the [[Game Boy]]; it was later succeeded by the [[Game Boy Advance]]. It is slightly taller and thicker than the [[Game Boy Pocket]]. The main feature of this model, as the name suggests, is the color screen. It is also the first Game Boy not to include a contrast knob. Its most popular games are {{game|Gold and Silver|s}}, selling approximately 14.51 million copies in Japan and the US combined. The Game Boy Color was discontinued in 2003, shortly after the release of the [[Game Boy Advance SP]].
Like the [[Game Boy]], [[Game Boy Advance]], and [[Nintendo DS]], the Game Boy Color is not region-encoded. This means that a player can play a Game Boy Color game from any region in their own locally purchased console.
