E3 2001: THQ announces MotoGP GBA

THQ's street bike franchise is coming to Nintendo's next-generation handheld.


MotoGP, based on Dorna's FIM motorcycle Road Racing World Championship Grand Prix, is scheduled for release in fall 2001 for the Game Boy Advance. Fans of the motorbike circuit will be able to enjoy racing several real-world bikes from manufacturers including Honda, Suzuki, Yamaha and more. MotoGP for the Game Boy Advance will offer a four-player mode, three classes of races including 125cc, 250cc, 500cc, and competition with the world's elite motorcycle riders. The game features 20 real tracks to choose from and five challenging modes of gameplay. In addition, MotoGP simulates realistic adverse weather conditions such as fog and rain.

According to Tim Walsh, senior vice president of International publishing at THQ, "Given the capabilities of the Game Boy Advance, we're thrilled to bring the most powerful motorcycles and the world's best riders of MotoGP to the new handheld system." THQ will be showing MotoGP, along with its entire lineup at E3, and we'll bring you our impressions direct from the show floor.
