More Details on Sega's Three GBA Titles

[ THIS ARTICLE WAS ORIGINALLY POSTED ON FEBRUARY 1st 2001 ]

Find out when you'll be able to play these titles on your Game Boy Advance system this year.

Sega made history this morning when the company revealed its future publishing plans for 2001 and beyond – the company is slowly leaving the system business and transmogrifying into one of the biggest third-party publishers for the Game Boy Advance, Gamecube, XBox, and PlayStation 2.

As we reported last night, the company announced that it has three Game Boy Advance games currently in the works:

  • Chu Chu Rocket!. The game will be a port of the niche Dreamcast puzzler where you have to direct a steady stream of mice into the level's rocketship. The Game Boy Advance version will allow for four player support utilizing the link cable. It's scheduled to be a launch title in Japan – March 21.
  • Sonic the Hedgehog Advance. The game is reported to be along the lines of the Genesis 2D sidescroller, with brand new levels unique to the Nintendo system. The game is currently scheduled for a worldwide release with the US system this July. Blast Processing not needed -- just look how well the NeoGeo Pocket Color version measured up.
  • Puyo Puyo. This year marks the tenth anniversary of the Puyo Puyo series of puzzle games, and it's making the move to the Game Boy Advance this summer in Japan…with a release sometime before Christmas in the US and Europe. The series has sold more than 10,000,000 copies worldwide. Previously, the game has only been released three times in the US: Kirby's Avalanche for the SNES, Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine for the Genesis, and Puyo Pop for the NeoGeo Pocket Color.


Sega plans to continue on the Game Boy Advance after these three titles, but no other games have been announced
