Posted on November 19, 2002 @ 3:38 PM EST by: Hairball
The most successful video game system in history is finally ready for its debut on the big screen. Nintendo of America Inc. today announced it will introduce the NINTENDO GAMECUBE Game Boy Player in May 2003, allowing a library of more than 1,000 games designed for the original Game Boy®, Game Boy® Color and the current Game Boy® Advance to be displayed on home televisions through the NINTENDO GAMECUBE™ console.



The Game Boy Player, a one-inch platform connecting to the bottom of the NINTENDO GAMECUBE, will match the NINTENDO GAMECUBE footprint and allow players to use either their console controller or Game Boy Advance to direct action on screen.

The Game Boy Player accommodates several novel forms of game play. With the Game Boy or Game Boy Advance game cartridge inserted in the Game Boy Player, a regular NINTENDO GAMECUBE controller or WaveBird™ wireless controller can direct the action. Or, using the Nintendo GameCube Game Boy Advance link cable (sold separately), the Game Boy Advance becomes the controller. The Game Boy Player also supports multiplayer action via Game Boy Advance Link Cables. Player one sees the action on the TV screen while other players view the screens on their linked Game Boy Advance systems.

The Game Boy Player will launch in Japan in March 2003. The manufacturer's suggested retail price has not yet been announced for the North American market.
