About the Game Boy Advance

The Gameboy Advance, usually shortened to GBA in the gaming community, is a handheld video game system that was released by Nintendo in March 2001. After its initial release in Japan, it was shipped around the globe in June. At the time of its release, the system had primary competition in the form of the Neo Geo Color, N-Gage, and the Tapwave Zodiac. However, building off of the success of their Game Boy Series, none of these other systems stood a chance. As of now, it has sold over 81 million units around the world, most of these sales occurring until the next generation Game Boy SP was released in 2004.

The success of the GBA can be widely attributed to the Mario games on the Game Boy Advance along with familiar titles such as the Pokemon franchise. These games integrated sprite-based graphics with technology that was able to compete with that of the Super Nintendo. While many game producers were eager to make new titles, the best selling point of the Game Boy Advance was that it ported in numerous titles from older Nintendo Systems. In particular, Mario games on the Game Boy Advance adapted multitudes of famous titles for use on the system. From the classic “Super Mario Bros.” Classic NES Series re-port to the “Super Mario World” remake known as Super Mario Advance 2, every Nintendo customer could now carry their favorite Mario games on the Game Boy Advance.

Given its upgrades in screen size, game libraries, and graphics, it is little wonder that the Game Boy Advance was so successful. However, after a tremendous run and many notable games being produced for the system, production of games was ended in 2006 to make way for the next generation of gaming systems.
