Nintendo's biggest little project is a serious dynamo. It slices, it dices, it might even make Julienne fries! Check out the latest info on the Game Boy Advance.
Nintendo's putting the finishing touches on the new Game Boy Advance(GBA). Due out on June 11th 2001, it's one lean, mean little bundle of joy.
The bright sparks at Nintendo R&D have crammed in a 32-bit CPU in a case that's pretty much the same size as the regular Gameboy. A bigger, brighter screen with a higher resolution is totally sweet, it'll even play video clips. The new shape fits in a pair of L and R buttons for more control. And sound is covered by not one but TWO sound chips squeezing every drop of noise from the speakers.
All these new features really eat battery power right? Nope, get this - the batteries last longer, 15 hours per pair of AA compared to the previous 10 hours. Score!
The goodness doesn't stop there. The GBA is totally compatible with all your old Gameboy games, black&white or color. The only thing it can't do is the Infrared link. Instead it can handle four-way link cables for multiplayer action. If you're not in the mood for multiplayer, you can hook up a color camera, printer or even plug it into a Gamecube and use the GBA as a controller.
