Sega will be re-releasing two GBA classics on one cart next month.

SEGA OFFERS GAME BOY ADVANCE OWNERS A DOUBLE DOSE OF SONIC

Two Fun Sonic games…One Great Value

SAN FRANCISCO (October 6, 2005) -- SEGA® of America, Inc. today announced that it will publish Sonic Advance™ & Sonic Pinball Party™ Combo Pack for the Game Boy® Advance. This value package gives gamers two of Sonic's most exciting handheld adventures on a single cartridge.

A best-selling title on the Game Boy Advance since its debut in 2002, Sonic Advance is a fast-paced 2D side-scroller that allows players to take on challenges as Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and Amy. Once again, Dr. Eggman is at it with a new scheme to challenge Sonic and his pals. Sonic Pinball Party allows you to flip, tilt and spin through intricate pinball boards and tackle five different pinball-based game modes, featuring your favorite Sonic Team characters including Sonic and friends, Amigo and NiGHTS.

"Given the recent release of the Game Boy® Micro and the backwards compatibility of the Nintendo DS™, the Game Boy platform is as relevant and popular as ever," said Don Mesa, Senior Brand Manager, SEGA of America, Inc. "Sonic Advance & Sonic Pinball Party Combo Pack offers two distinctly different gameplay experiences, both perfect for gaming on the go."

Both games on the combo pack also offer multiplayer options, allowing gamers to throw a quick multiplayer party anywhere. Sonic Pinball Party includes Hot Potato, Air Hockey, and Ladder Climb, and Sonic Advance includes Racing Party, all supported by the Game Boy Advance Link® Cable.

Sonic Advance & Sonic Pinball Party Combo Pack is rated 'E' for ‘Everyone' and will be available November 2005 for an MSRP of $29.95.

Holy crap I would SO buy this if it gets released over here. Which is probably will! Winrar! Sonic Advance + 2 would of made more sense, though. Especially since SA2 is the hardest of the lot to find.

Hurray! I'll go play my non-portable version of Sonic Spinball in celebration!

Super magic edit: I just checked up to see if this was going to get an Aussie release, and yes! Seems there's also a Sonic Advance + Sonic Battle and Sonic Advance + Columns Crown coming out, too.
