SAN FRANCISCO (October 6, 2005) -- SEGA® of America, Inc. today announced that it will publish Sonic AdvanceTM & Sonic Pinball PartyTM Combo Pack for the Game Boy® Advance. This value package gives gamers two of Sonic's most exciting handheld adventures on a single cartridge.
A best-selling title on the Game Boy Advance since its debut in 2002, Sonic Advance is a fast-paced 2D side-scroller that allows players to take on challenges as Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and Amy. Once again, Dr. Eggman is at it with a new scheme to challenge Sonic and his pals. Sonic Pinball Party allows you to flip, tilt and spin through intricate pinball boards and tackle five different pinball-based game modes, featuring your favorite Sonic Team characters including Sonic and friends, Amigo and NiGHTS.
"Given the recent release of the Game Boy® Micro and the backwards compatibility of the Nintendo DSTM, the Game Boy platform is as relevant and popular as ever," said Don Mesa, Senior Brand Manager, SEGA of America, Inc. "Sonic Advance & Sonic Pinball Party Combo Pack offers two distinctly different gameplay experiences, both perfect for gaming on the go."
Both games on the combo pack also offer multiplayer options, allowing gamers to throw a quick multiplayer party anywhere. Sonic Pinball Party includes Hot Potato, Air Hockey, and Ladder Climb, and Sonic Advance includes Racing Party, all supported by the Game Boy Advance Link® Cable.
Sonic Advance & Sonic Pinball Party Combo Pack is rated 'E' for 'Everyone' and will be available November 2005 for an MSRP of $29.95. For screenshots and artwork, visit the SEGA FTP site at: http://segapr.segaamerica.com.
