GBA lineup confirmed

15 launch titles and a $99 price tag for the console itself

GameBoy fans who have been patiently gnawing their finger nails down to the bone have finally discovered which games Nintendo has chosen to release with the GameBoy Advance. Of the 15 titles confirmed, only two are first-party titles, and one comes by way of the newly liberated third party publisher Sega. Before we list the games, we ought to mention the pricing. The system itself will cost $99.95 when it launches on June 11th, and the games should cost from between $29.95 and $39.95. We reckon that should boil down to a retail cost of approximately £99 in this country and games at around £25 to £30, which is pretty much what top-spec GameBoy games used to cost. Nintendo have also told us that they intend to launch more than 60 titles before the end of the year, but anyway, onto the list!

Unfortunately, the game EuroGamer is anticipating the most, Kuru Kuru Kururin, isn't quite ready yet, even if it looked pretty much complete while on show at last year's ECTS. That said, you can take a look at some new screenshots of it on GameBoy.com that were issued this month.
