The Game Boy Advance (ゲームボーイアドバンス Gēmu Bōi Adobansu, often shortened to GBA) is a 32-bit handheld video game console developed, manufactured, and marketed by Nintendo and is the successor to the Game Boy Color. It was released in Japan on March 21, 2001; in North America on June 11, 2001; in Australia and Europe on June 22, 2001; and in the People's Republic of China on June 8, 2004 (excluding Hong Kong).
The console features backward compatibility for Game Boy and Game Boy Color games and a link port at the top of the unit which allows it to be connected to other devices via use of a Nintendo Game Link cable or GameCube cable. When playing Game Boy or Game Boy Color games on the Game Boy Advance, the L and R buttons can be used to toggle between a stretched widescreen format (240×144) and the original screen ratio of the Game Boy (160×144). Game Boy games can be played using the same selectable color palettes as on the Game Boy Color. The console was also released in two other models: the Game Boy Advance SP and the Game Boy Micro.
Every Nintendo handheld system following the release of the original Game Boy Advance has included a built-in light and rechargeable battery.

The left shoulder button ("L") is used to press a witnesses's testimony in court, while the right shoulder button ("R") is used to check the court record or present evidence during testimony.
