Just Days after the US Micro launch, internet rumors, as well as the below shawty image hint that Nintendo has quietly launched a new backlight GBA SP.

Gaming Age forum user: “Since the Micro wasn’t going to be out for another week and I had the money, I bought the Graphite, turned it on in the car and sure enough the thing’s backlit. What was once the ‘light on/off’ button in the middle now just switches between two brightless levels a la the PSP’s brightness button.”

If this is in fact true, you gotta believe that Ninny’s been quiet to keep the focus on the Micro.
