Click to read.Nintendo has announced the release date and price for the Game Boy Micro. The new super tiny system will come out on September 19, 2005, and will cost $99. The GB Micro plays all Game Boy Advance games, and features interchangeable faceplates.

The unit will be available in two base colors: black and silver. Each base unit includes a faceplate for further customization. The black unit comes with the Flame and Camoflauge faceplates, and the silver unit comes with the Ammonite and Ladybug faceplates.

The GB Micro measures 4 inches wide, 2 inches long and 0.7 inches thin. It weighs 2.8 ounces, about the weight of 80 paper clips. The 2 inch backlit screen looks nice and sharp, and the buttons are backlit with a blue led glow.

Nintendo hopes the GB Micro will become the fashion accessory of the year, and we have to admit that it is damn cute.

All of this news comes hot on the heels of news of a price drop on the Nintendo DS, set to coincide with the US release of Nintendogs on August 22.
