The Game Boy Light is a backlit and updated version of the Game Boy Pocket exclusively released in Japan. It was first sold in stores on April 14, 1998.

The Game Boy Light only lasted a short amount of time before the Game Boy Color had a release in October 1998. The Game Boy Light resembles the Game Boy Pocket; however, the battery compartment is different in shape and the size is slightly larger. The reason it is larger is that its battery compartment requires two AA batteries, rather than two AAA batteries that was used in the Game Boy Pocket. These batteries were also AAs to support the backlit screen it had.

The Game Boy Light was available in two different colors at launch; gold and silver, then later available in translucent yellow (Toys "R" Us), translucent red (Tezuka Osamu World Shop), and clear (Astro Boy & Famitsu) as special, limited editions.
