In addition, THQ also obtained the rights to publish Fortress, Caesar’s Palace, Dark Arena, M & M’s Fun Blast, Aerial Aces, F-14 Tomcat, as well as a new title to be announced. All of the games are scheduled for release through 2001.

Tim Walsh, Senior Vice President of International Publishing, THQ, commented, “The addition of these great games from Majesco expands our Game Boy Advance portfolio to more than 25 titles for 2001.
