Goku gears up to make several appearances on Game Boy Advance and GameCube.

Last night on the way home a certain "birdy" from Infogrames approached me on the flight back home with some interesting news.

After the year long fight to get the Dragon Ball Z license, Infogrames plans to put the hard earned license to good use on leading consoles including GameCube and Game Boy Advance.

Several planned DBZ related games ranging from RPG's, to fighting, to adventure games are planned for release starting next year. All are expected to be released on Nintendo's next generation machines.

It seems Infogrames was really impressed with GameCube at the show and defenitely plans to throw its support behind both the GameCube and the Game Boy Advance.

The connectivity possibilities between the GameCube and Game Boy Advance really excited our "birdy" on the plane. This is something that our source would like to see taken advantage of.

My source couldn't give me any more details on the DBZ games or any other games heading towards Nintendo systems. However, the source went on to say that they were not impressed with previous DBZ releases and vows to bring the license to a higher level.
