The world's two foremost video game developers, Nintendo and Electronic Arts, today announced a collaboration on games that will include exclusive features for connected play between the Nintendo GameCube console and the portable Game Boy Advance system. The creative effort will be led by EA, with Nintendo's legendary game producer, Shigeru Miyamoto, providing input on technical game play elements.
The first three EA titles to support connectivity between the two systems will be FIFA 2004, Tiger Woods PGA TOUR® 2004 and Madden NFLTM 2004. FIFA 2004 will be available on both systems when the game launches in Europe this autumn and Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 2004 is scheduled for launch in October. Madden NFL 2004 will launch on the Nintendo GameCube and Game Boy Advance simultaneously in August. Over the next 12 months, EA plans to introduce approximately 20 Nintendo GameCube titles from their EA SPORTS, EA GAMES, and EA SPORTS BIG brands. Some of the additional Nintendo GameCube titles are also expected to support connectivity with Game Boy Advance.
