The Game Boy Advance SP (as in "special") (ゲームボーイアドバンスSP, Gēmu Bōi Adobansu Esupi) is the second version of the Game Boy Advance.

Over the four years since its release, Nintendo have issued many special designs of the new system, such as a design resembling the classic Nintendo Entertainment System colors and special Pokémon designs. A special edition golden The Legend of Zelda-themed SP was available, limited to 25,000 copies, coming bundled with The Minish Cap. It was available for sale only in Europe and Australia, and available in the United States only through special giveaways.
