Game Boy Advance RPG is returning on new-gen consoles after 20 years

Game Boy Advance RPG is returning on new-gen consoles after 20 years

A return of a classic

The Game Boy Advance was home to many incredible titles back in its day and with many of them now making their way to the Nintendo Switch, this hit entry is no exception.

First released in 2001, the Game Boy Advance was one of many staple consoles during our childhoods and was home to many incredible titles such as Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire and Mario Kart: Super Circuit.

Check out the trailer for Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet below!

However, one slightly more underrated title was Sigma Star Saga.

Released on the Game Boy Advance in 2005, Sigma Star Saga is a “hybrid science-fiction role-playing-space-shooter” developed by WayForward Technologies and published by Bandai Namco.

Now, ahead of its 20th anniversary, it has been reported that Sigma Star Saga will be arriving to modern-day platforms, including PC. We are currently unsure which platforms it will be but we can assume the Nintendo Switch will be a definite.

Following the launch of the Carbon Engine from Limited Run Games, this is just another Game Boy title which has been given a new lease of life in recent years. This is alongside classics that have recently been made available for Nintendo Switch Online subscribers.

Although we don’t know too many more details about Sigma Star Saga, we do know that Limited Run Games will be releasing a reproduction cartridge of the title allowing for players to access it on the original Game Boy Advance hardware.

Despite information being scarce, we do know that Sigma Star Saga received mainly positive reviews when it was first released in 2005 and was praised for its unique take on the shooter genre.

In other news, a spiritual successor for Animal Crossing: New Horizons is set to arrive on the Nintendo Switch as early as next year. It seems the Nintendo console is heading for another resurgence thanks to these highly anticipated titles.
