June 11, is the release date in the U.S.
Either wait, or get the japanese vers. from your nearest importer.

HAHAHAHA . Man , you know , when I saw it at Super Wal-Mart , you could play super mario advance on it , and it was so cool .
I thought it was already on sale at wal-mart , so i was like , "How much for this thing ?"
They say "Oh , it`s NOT FOR SALE , It`s not out in the US .... "
And I`m there standing with a damn US one in my frickin hand , does that person think I`m dumb ?????
Yes ........ considering when I thought it was US , I went to the Mario Advance title screen , and it was allllllllll japanese .............
Man , I felt so stupid . I wanted to strangle her . But , wal-mart and other stores play all of us for saps when they show it , but don`t actually have it .
But when they have it , I`m gonna buy one in there faces , AND PLAY IT IN FRONT OF THEM , AND CHANT " HAHAHAHAHA , IT`S A USSSSSSSSSSSSS VERSION !!!!!!!!!! ":)
And then , they`ll feel the pain and sorrow I felt when I tried to buy it before it came to the US ..............:(

too bad SM advace is only SMB2 and original mario bros. from atari :(
why couldnt they have used SMB3? That would rock even harder.
I guess that it will be coming out eventually plus lots of SNES ports too.

They couldn't be any worse than the salespeople form the Pc world chain in Uk/Ireland. They work on a commision basis and know less about pc's than my grandmother. Basicaly think of a used car salesman and you get the idea.
One thing I always find funny... they can sense newbies. If you know nothing about Pcs when you walk in, within 5 minutes there will 10 of them advising you to by a (ugh) packard bell. However if you go into the shop and you know what a PCI slot is you can't find one within 100 miles

Over on Zophar.net's new Store section they have a section where you can (pre)order different GBA bundles and such. From what I've seen the prices have been fairly competitive, plus, if you use Zophar as much as I do, you can feel good knowing that you've contributed some towards the site. Hehe, that came off like a sale's pitch, sorry.
>does that person think I`m dumb ?????
It is WalMart, after all. I can only hope that Mr. Gates will become so enraged about Mr. Walton's (isn't that his name?) being the newly crowned richest person that he declares war on Walmart and Sam's. A pipe dream? Perhaps, but it's still fun to think about.
>they can sense newbies
I can completely believe that. At my local Circuit City the clerks will flee from you if they sense you have a vague idea about what you're doing. Hell, they have a huge "Join AOL! It's the only way to use the Internet!" sign across the front door. For ages now they've had some Voodoo 5 cards prominately displayed as being the very newest video card series you could buy. And everyone wonders why I order things online ;)
