The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past for Game Boy AdvanceWhile the DS has been stealing the limelight recently with HUGE sales numbers, Nintendo has not yet completely forgotten about the system that has sustained it for decades (or in this case, years), the Game Boy. While Game Boy Advance sales have certainly diminished since the DS took over, the platform is still completely viable with sales numbers still high.

And Nintendo vows to increase those numbers even higher by announcing that several new games have joined the GBA Player’s Choice line of budget-priced, $20 GBA games.

Mario & Luigi Superstar SagaGames already in the line include the venerable hits: Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, Metroid Fusion (look for my review soon), Metroid: Zero Mission, Mega Man Battle Network, Pokemon Ruby, Pokemon Sapphire, Super Mario Advance, Yoshi’s Island: Super Mario Advance 3 and Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3.

Now, beginning Oct. 3, the growing list will benefit by the inclusion of: The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (Four Swords included), Mario Kart: Super Circuit, Pokemon FireRed & LeafGreen and, completing the Super Mario Bros. series, Super Mario Advance 2: Super Mario World.

Pokemon Leaf Green VersionTo date, Nintendo has sold 75.8 million GBAs worldwide–a figure the company predicts will reach 77.6 million units by March 2007. All GBA games can be played on Nintendo’s DS.
