    The Game Boy Advance SP is a truly pocket-sized gadget, at only 84.6mm from front to back, 82mm wide, and an incredibly svelte 24.3mm thin. Nintendo has introduced further innovations to suit its new image, including a flip-top screen with an integrated front screen light, plus a rechargeable lithium battery similar to those found in mobile phones, offering gamers over 10 hours of continuous illuminated game-play. When the front light is turned off, the continual play increases to approximately 18 hours.

    David Gosen, Managing Director, Nintendo of Europe stated, "With the launch of Game Boy Advance SP, Nintendo will be able to place their gaming expertise into the hands of new users who value outstanding design as highly as technology. There's an incredible range of games already available, and an ever-increasing number designed for players who may not have held a console since the days of Tetris. Following the incredible success of the Game Boy Advance, this is a very exciting time for Nintendo and an exceptional start to 2003."

    Game Boy Advance SP will be available across Europe from March 28th 2003, priced at around €129 - €139 (~£85).
