Speedball 2: GBA: Preview in Nintendo Magazine
Posted: Tuesday, 16 July 2002

In the August edition of the Official Nintendo Magazine there is a preview of our upcoming Crawfish Interactive conversion of Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe to the Gameboy Advance handheld.

    What made the original so addictive was the combination of red hot gameplay and a managment section that allowed players to tweak the specific attributes of the Brutal Deluxe team. We’re pleased to say that they’ve made it into the re-make and there are new features including a link-up mode and brand new teams and players.
