In an apparent attempt to keep their name on PGC for as long as possible, today Blizzard announced that two more of their classic Super NES games will be ported to Game Boy Advance. Here's the official word:

UPDATE! New Blizzard Classic Arcade Games Revealed

Following Monday's announcement about the return of The Lost Vikings™, several people wrote in to find out if their favorite Blizzard Classic game would be published under the new label. In response, we are pleased to announce that Rock N' Roll Racing™ and Blackthorne™ will also be published for the Nintendo® Game Boy® Advance system.

Featuring multiple racetracks and a classic soundtrack, Rock N' Roll Racing puts players behind the wheel for an over-the-top demolition-racing experience. In the game, drivers take their pick from a variety of cars, each equipped with a selection of weaponry designed to help them outmaneuver the competition. Taking advantage of the Game Boy Advance Game Link® cable, players can also go head-to-head against each other for fast-paced multiplayer action.

In Blackthorne, players take the role of Kyle Blackthorne, a lethal commando equipped with brute strength and animal cunning. Each level in this action-packed adventure game will have players confronting danger at every turn as they engage in battle on a futuristic planet overrun by mutant monsters and goblin hordes. Both games are expected to ship in 2003 for an expected retail price of approximately $29.99.
