Nintendo Increases GAMECUBE Units, Delays Ship Date
In addition, Nintendo announced a link between NINTENDO GAMECUBE and Game Boy Advance. Players can transfer a character trained on NINTENDO GAMECUBE to Game Boy Advance to continue game play while away from home, or transport characters or items via Game Boy Advance for trading with other players.
"Our industry has learned the dangers of arriving at a launch party without enough gifts," explains Peter Main, executive vice president, sales and marketing, Nintendo of America Inc. "By increasing our day one shipments to almost three-quarters of a million, we not only should come close to meeting total demand at launch, but also assure a virtually uninterrupted restocking through the holiday season."
Nintendo says the company is still on track to launch in Japan on September 14, 2001, and in Europe in early 2002.
