Game Boy Advance EARLY Release Dates!

by Billy Berghammer - May 30, 2001, 3:51 pm EDT

We've called almost every store in AMERICA! Well not quite, but we've got new dates for when you could see some titles early! THPS2 early! HELL YEAH!

Yes it’s true! If you have an import GBA you could get some titles early. As we reported earlier, some Wal Mart and Toys R’ Us stores already have received Earthworm Jim , Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure, and Iridion -3D-. Some stores are selling early, and some are not. Make phone calls to make sure your local store has them in stock and is willing to sell.

So what about the other early titles? Looks like there will be a steady flow of new titles starting tomorrow! Here’s some quick updated possible release dates for GBA games….

May 31st:

Ready 2 Rumble Round 2

June 1st:

Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2

June 5th:

Pinobee: Wings of Adventure

June 6th:

Namco Museum GBA

Castlevania: Circle of the Moon

Konami Krazy Racers

Army Men Advance

Rayman Advance

GT Advance Championship Racing

Chu Chu Rocket

June 8th:

Fire Pro Wrestling

June 11th:


Super Mario Advance

Top Gear GT

Tweety and the Magical Jewel

Super Dodgeball Advance

As far as 3rd Party accessories, you should see those popping up around the 5th or the 6th. With Nintendo’s actual US GBA systems, games, and accessories, most stores are saying the 11th or later.

Where will you be able to buy? I would call your local mall store (Electronics Boutique, Babbages, Software Etc, GameStop, etc.) and see what dates they will start getting in the new titles. Bigger chains like K-Mart, Walmart, Best Buy, etc…it’s a little more chancy. They have stricter release guidelines. But you never know.

So basically we are creating a PAK watch in our forums!! Let us know where you’ve spotted games, or when your local area is getting games and systems in. Help your fellow planeteers out there get their GBA love early! You know you can’t wait!
