UK Sonic Advance 2 Release Date Delayed for Game Boy Advance SP

Any UK Sonic fans looking forward to Sonic Advance 2’s launch today? Well our day is about to be ruined, sadly, as online retailers have announced a delayed release date for the game. It will now be hitting stores a week from now – Friday 28th March.

Why? Well, the logical reason points to Nintendo’s upcoming launch of its revised Game Boy Advance system, the GBA SP. This clamshell device is looking to make a big splash in the UK and Europe, so it seems Infogrames is pushing back Sonic Advance 2 so that it can ride the positive wave that will come with a new console launch day.

A real shame, but what can you do? See you guys in a week, we guess.
