You'd think this would be the simplest thing in the world to find out, but Wikipedia and all other sources just mention the USA and Japan release dates -- not the European one. I have no idea why because I know for a 100% fact that they did release the Game Boy Pocket here.

Wikipedia doesn't even have a dedicated article for it -- it's part of the general Game Boy article.

It probably was sometime in 1996, but I need the exact date.

  • Could the European release date be included in the PAL release date?

  • @UncleBod Yes, but even that info was lacking wherever I looked?

The Spanish Wikipedia has a dedicated Gameboy Pocket article, giving a European release date of March 1997.

    And the Swedish Wikipedia article about Game Boy Pocket says it was released in Sweden 14th November 1996.
