Final GBA hardware colors and new screens
[01.16.00] » See the colors available at the GBA's Japanese launch and take a new look at a half-dozen RPGs in development for the system.
With the Japanese release of the Game Boy Advance
rapidly approaching on March 21, Nintendo has finally revealed more
details about the new handheld's launch. The GBA will be released
in three colors initially: plain white, classic SpaceWorld purple,
and translucent purple. The system itself will retail for Y9800 and
early reports place the games at about Y5800 -- the same price as
most Dreamcast and PlayStation games.
Nintendo has yet to finalize a list of their own
launch titles, but they have released new screens of their first-
and second-party titles under development, a healthy number of which
fall under the GIA's coverage:
Although none of these titles are currently confirmed
for launch in Japan or the US, expect to see at least a few make the
trip stateside. The GIA will bring you more details on these games
as the launch approaches.
