THQ and Sega have today announced that they will publish Sega Arcade Gallery for the Game Boy Advance early next year. Sega Arcade Gallery will be a collection of four classic Sega arcade titles--After Burner, Outrun, Space Harrier, and Super Hang On--that were all designed by Yu Suzuki.
"Arcade classics like those developed by Yu Suzuki are legendary and very popular and we are very proud to add them to our Game Boy Advance lineup," said Alison Locke, executive vice president, North American publishing, THQ. "Great games will always be great games whether they are developed today or 10 years ago."
"Sega has a 40-year heritage in the video game industry and some of the world's most legendary video game talent including Yu Suzuki," said Shinobu Toyoda, executive vice president of content strategy and business development, Sega of America. "Sega's alliance with THQ, a leader in the handheld gaming category, helps us to bring our leading brands and classic content such as Sega Arcade Gallery to the Game Boy Advance platform and an even bigger audience of gamers."
