Looks like the cat is out of the bag – according to a listing on US retailer EBGames, Sonic Advance will be hitting stores on November 16th.
As well as a mock packshot, the listing page includes the following detail on the game: “Hop on ridges, slide down rails and grab some rings… Sonic is back and he’s as fast as ever! With a choice of 4 characters and link cable support for multiple players, this classic 2D platformer takes full advantage of Nintendo’s powerful new handheld.”
SEGA has yet to comment on the date. You can see the EBGames listing for yourself here.
