The Sims Bustin' Out ships for GBA

Electronic Arts announces the North American release of its life simulation game for the Game Boy Advance.


Electronic Arts has today shipped the Game Boy Advance version of The Sims Bustin' Out to stores across North America. The game allows players to assume direct control of their sims so that they can explore 20 locations that are exclusive to the GBA. Additionally, the GBA version will support connectivity with the GameCube version that is scheduled for release later this month.

"Sims fans can now take their sims anywhere with The Sims Bustin' Out on Game Boy Advance," said Sinjin Bain, vice president and executive producer of the game at EA's Maxis studio. "In bringing The Sims to the Game Boy Advance, we've redesigned the gameplay to translate the core Sims gameplay into a unique Game Boy Advance experience, while keeping the signature offbeat humor of The Sims."
