Hunt Valley, MD ~ May 20, 2002 ~ Since the launch of Game Boy AdvanceĀ® last June, InterAct Accessories, Inc. has continued to develop and introduce new accessories to keep GBA gamers interested and engaged in the handheld gaming experience. The most recent product offerings from InterAct, a Recoton company (NASDAQ:RCOT), essentially transform the GBA into a mini-entertainment center.

At the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), May 22 - 24, 2002 in Los Angeles, CA, InterAct will unveil the HandyPak Advanced, a multi-featured accessory with a built-in light, stereo speakers and hand grips, the Light Magnifier and the Total Players Pak. In addition to these new products, the company will have their full GBA line on hand at the expo.

"For the Game Boy Advance, the biggest challenge is lighting the screen and we have two new accessories to tackle that with the HandyPak Advanced and the Light Magnifier," said Rodney Hillman, Vice President of Product Development and Planning for InterAct

The HandyPak Advanced offers multiple features such as an ultra-bright light for illuminating the GBA Screen, stereo speakers for the ultimate sound experience and ergonomic hand grips for more comfort while playing. When not in use, the HandyPak Advanced folds down to protect the GBA screen. This unit is available in polar bear white and ultraviolet at an MSRP of $14.99.

Gamers can increase the size of their GBA screen by snapping on the Light Magnifier. This lightweight unit boasts 1.5 X magnification and its dual lights provide ample screen illumination for playing in low-light situations. The Light Magnifier comes with two AAA batteries and is available in polar bear white and ultraviolet at an MSRP of $7.99.

The Total Players Pak offers a bundle of GBA accessory favorites for an MSRP of just $19.99. This GBA and Game Boy Color dual compatible package contains the SharkLight, six-hour flush mount battery, GBC battery adapter collar, AC Adapter, Link Cable and carrying case.

The HandyPak Advanced, Light Magnifier and Total Players Pak are currently available at major toy and electronic retailers nationwide.
