Microsoft games to appear on the GBA

THQ will publish several of Microsoft's games for the Game Boy Advance.


THQ announced today that it will publish games developed by Microsoft for Nintendo's Game Boy Advance handheld. The deal will bring popular Microsoft properties such as Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee and Monster Truck Madness 2.0 to Nintendo's handheld platform.

"I have not yet spoken with Nintendo but we think they're going to be very excited about it because it extends their platform too," said Brian Farrell, chief executive of THQ.

The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, though more of Microsoft's properties are reportedly headed to the Game Boy Advance.

"Our partnership with THQ provides an exciting licensing opportunity to introduce some of Microsoft Game Studios' best-selling franchises to new and broader audiences worldwide," said John Jordan, director of Xbox business development at Microsoft Game Studios.
