Backyard Sports for the GBA

Infogrames' Backyard Sports series is heading to the Game Boy Advance.


Infogrames has announced that it will bring its Backyard Sports games to the Game Boy Advance. The first game to be released for the handheld will be Backyard Baseball. The game will feature 30 Backyard kids, as well as 30 Major League Baseball players--such as Mike Piazza and Ken Griffey Jr.--who will be portrayed as kids.

"We are thrilled to be working with Infogrames to bring the baseball experience to a new level--one that kids can experience anywhere they are," said Carolann Dunn, senior director of licensing for Major League Baseball. "Backyard Baseball is sure to appeal to baseball fans and young gamers alike."

Backyard Baseball is scheduled for release in June.
