    Sorry...couldn't find screenshots at school (many sites blocked).

    This is a sad, sad way for the GBA to die [​IMG]

    The Bee Game isn't dumped yet, and I think Hamsterz Life 2 might have a GBA version. All upcoming announced games are US only. No more PAL GBA support.

    Bee Game isn't dumped because it was delayed for a few weeks.

    There's still a few Euro games to be dumped too. But they're all crap. There's 2-3 versions of Bratz the Movie, for instance.

    Yeag. What I meant is that official support by European publishers for GBA is over. Any PAL games which get dumped now aren't "new" per se.

    Forgot about the Cars one...

    PAL refers to a video standard, as does NTSC.

    The Nintendo Game Boy and Nintendo DS do not differentiate between PAL and NTSC. This is why anyone with either a GBA or NDS can run programs from EU, FR, JP and even USA without having to worry about hardware requirements.

    Jesus, nintendo is dumb. Why not make the system go out with a bang like the SNES? or at least continue the GBA with regular titles. all I see are crap, and nintendo definitely knows fully that people won't buy this garbage lol. Well I guess they figure nobody plays it any more.

    That's right. Final Fantasy VI Advance was the LAST retail Japanese game, way back in November 2006. New boxed releases for Europe just ended a month or two ago. It's only North American ones that are barely hanging on.

    I'd like to see it go out with Mother 3.
    That'd be a pretty big bang, in my opinion.

    Nintendo has continued to spit out GBA garbage for the last couple months.
    It'd be really nice to see atleast one decent game came out near the "end days", before the handheld "died."

    I really wish more homebrew would be released on the GBA, as it's mainly being made on the DS now.
    Where's the love for GBA? There are no gimmicks with the GBA, no two screens; no touch screens.
    I think it'd be easier to make them for the GBA, anyways.

    It's an example of what happens when Nintendo themselves stops, and lets third-party games overrun it. Coincidentally... The last one they published for both US and EU was that same Final Fantasy VI.

    It's hard to tell if any more games are actually coming. Little info has been revealed about The Bee Game, Enchanted, and Hamsterz Life 2 on GBA.
