It’s been an interesting week for ultra-rare Nintendo console variants, with Queen Elizabeth’s golden Wii recently going up for sale for a hefty $300,000. Another ultra-rare system has also resurfaced, this time it’s the unreleased silver-and-teal Game Boy Advance from Spaceworld 2000.

Andrew, who goes by @GamingLegend64 on Twitter, is currently in possession of the elusive handheld. He hasn’t yet revealed where it was found or how it was obtained, but he teased that more details will follow in an upcoming Hard4Games YouTube video, including “a cool surprise.”

 

 

The Spaceworld event in 2000 was a momentous time for Nintendo, as it hosted the reveal of both the GameCube and the Game Boy Advance. This silver and teal GBA was one of a few colorways shown at the event which never made it on the market. Hard4Games has already explored another of these variants, the silver-and-orange GBA, in a video last year.
