Wow! I can't wait for this to come out. I think I'm more excited for this than the Gamecube version coming out. Check out some screenshots here.

I'd be even more interested than what I am if there was a way I could play GBA on a TV, ala Super Game Boy.

I'm definitely with you there--the great buzz I heard about this title from E3 really got me excited for some old-school, Super Metroid 2-D action, but I have a hard time spending several hours on a game on the GBA. I still have never finished any of the three Zelda Game Boy titles, just 'cause I can't stand playing on the tiny screen--and the Zelda series is one of my favorites. I'd love to have some sort of GBA to GameCube adapter so I could play the GBA on my 32" TV.

The only Game Boy titles I've ever really gotten my money's worth out of are simple, pick-up-and-play titles like Namco Museum, Super Dodge Ball, and the Mario Golf and Tennis games. . .

There is an adapter aparently to feed the video from the gba to a tv. Only thing its Japanese and would require you to mod the gba thus terminating the warrenty.

I'm more pumped about Metroid Prime, but Metroid Fusion is looking just as great. I like the whole idea of the fusion with a metroid and how it actually plays a part of the gameplay. Here is the trailer:
Link Removed (windows media)
There is an interesting scene at the end of the trailer...
Samus Aran's old armor steps out and blasts Samus away!
What is that all about? I can't wait to find out! :D

Why would it mean modding your GBA? I thought that all of the systems were the same worldwide?

I think by "modding", he means that you have to open it up and tinker with the electronics in order to install the GBA-to-TV adapter. Not "modding" in the sense that you'd have to mess with your American-bought GBA to play a Japanese GBA game, or whatever.

I'm a total dumb-ass when it comes to electronics, so I'm staying away of all of the new unofficial GBA enhancement devices like the Afterburner (back-lit screen device) and the TV adapter. If Nintendo would put out official versions of those things, I'd probably fork over nearly whatever they would ask for them in a heartbeat. Oh well. . .
