Game Boy™ Player
The Game Boy Player (ゲームボーイプレーヤー, Gēmu Bōi Purēyā) allows to play Game Boy Classic, Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance games on the Nintendo GameCube and is the last hardware solution for playing Game Boy Classic game cartridges on successor consoles.
The Game Boy Player hardware (DOL-017) plugs into the high-speed parallel port on the bottom of the GameCube. A boot disc (DOL-006) is required to access the hardware. The Game Boy Player does not emulate a Game Boy system. Instead, the attachment contains hardware that is almost identical to that of the Game Boy Advance.
