The Nintendo Switch had an excellent 2017, which was driven in part by Nintendo's focus on putting a bunch of first-party franchises on the console early.

Ultra Game Boy from Hyperkin puts Nintendo on notice

When you consider the success of the NES Classic and SNES Classic, it stands to reason that Nintendo would want to re-release all of its old consoles and handhelds under "Classic" branding. Rumors of a Game Boy Classic have been making the rounds for some time now, but if Nintendo is going to release such a product, it might want to hurry up, because Hyperkin might just beat it to the punch when it comes to tapping into Game Boy nostalgia.
