THQ has announced that it plans to release Matchbox Cross Town Heroes on the Game Boy Advance. In the game, players will commandeer Matchbox search and rescue vehicles, such as the "fire crusher" or "rescue net" police car, in an effort to curtail disaster. There are three extensive worlds to explore, each inhabited by more than 50 different characters, animals, and creatures. Each world also features various minigames, and players can unlock new vehicles and printable certificates upon successfully completing objectives.
Matchbox Cross Town Heroes is scheduled for release in summer 2002.
