The Super Game Boy is a converter cartridge released in 1994 which allows the user to play Game Boy games on their SNES.

Some Game Boy games of the time, including Donkey Kong (1994), Donkey Kong Land, Donkey Kong Land 2 and Donkey Kong Land III were enhanced to work specifically with the Super Game Boy, giving them a wider colour palette and custom borders. It has features 32 different color versions with their own specific colors.

The Super Game Boy was not compatible with later Game Boy Color cartridges that were not themselves backwards-comparable with the original Game Boy.
