Nintendo set to launch black GBA alongside new platformer

Nintendo is planning to launch the GameBoy Advance in new, jet-black threads to celebrate the release of Super Mario World : Super Mario Advance 2 on April 12 this year. The game, which is a near pixel-perfect translation of the Super Nintendo classic, is expected to follow Mario Kart Super Circuit's lead in establishing itself as one of the GBA's top sellers. The black GBA, the first official re-styling the console has received since its arrival in Europe last summer, will carry an RRP of €99 like its predecessors. The black styling is inspired by Nintendo's GameCube console, which will be available in black from day one in Europe, allowing gamers to colour coordinate their hardware if they are so inclined.
