Under the agreement between the two companies, THQ will co-publish 16 Game Boy Advance titles featuring SEGA brands through March 2003 throughout North America.
"THQ has been the number one independent publisher on Game Boy platforms for the past six years and these three titles are an excellent start to our relationship with Sega," said Alison Locke, executive vice president, North American Publishing, THQ. "Continuing to deliver high quality content from world class game designers such as Sega is key to our strategy to maintain our leadership position in the handheld category through 2002 and beyond."
"Working together with THQ, Sega is pleased to bring Sonic and other popular Sega franchises to the Game Boy Advance," said Charles Bellfield, vice president strategic planning and corporate affairs. "Combining Sega's creative content and THQ's leading market position on the platform, this alliance will help us continue to deliver the Sega experience to an even wider audience of gamers."
"SONIC ADVANCE" marks the 2D return of Sega's mascot Sonic the
Hedgehog. Players must solve puzzles and avoid traps to foil Dr.
Eggman's evil plot with the help of Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, or Amy. For the first time ever, players will be able to connect their Game Boy Advance to their Nintendo Gamecube system thanks to the innovative link feature found in "SONIC ADVANCE" and Sega's "SONIC ADVENTURE 2 BATTLE" for Nintendo Gamecube. "SONIC ADVENTURE 2 BATTLE" will be available on February 12.
In the classic puzzle game "COLUMNS CROWN," players collect magic gems in order to score points. Players can compete in single player mode or take part in two-player action via the Game Boy Advance Game Link. "PUYO POP" is another addictive puzzle game that challenges players to clear their screen of Puyo. Up to four players can battle it out with the Game Boy Advance Game Link.
The next three titles to release under the agreement between THQ and Sega will be "BASEBALL ADVANCE", available this spring for the start of the 2002 season; "THE PINBALL OF THE DEAD", available this summer; and "SMASH PACK", a collection of SEGA classics that will also be available this summer.
