SEGA of America today announced the release of "SEGA RALLY" for the Nintendo Game Boy Advance, marking the first time SEGA's classic Rally Race franchise is available on a handheld video game system. SEGA of America today also announced the release of "Aero Elite: Combat Academy" exclusively for the PlayStation2. Featuring more than 60 of the world's most powerful aircraft, "Aero Elite: Combat Academy" is the most realistic aerial-combat simulation available for PS2.

Gamers will earn their wings in an in-depth training mode, mastering the realistic in-game physics, controls and real-world weaponry for each aircraft. Then it's off to the hostile skies for a host of customizable combat missions throughout the world. "Aero Elite: Combat Academy" also features a two-player split-screen mode for head-to-head combat, and a massive arsenal of more than 60 aircraft, including real-world military fighters, experimental next-generation aircraft, and even heavily-armed attack helicopters.

"'Aero Elite: Combat Academy' provides more stomach-turning, real-world aerial action than any flight-simulation ever released on a console," said Mike Fischer, vice president of marketing, SEGA of America, Inc. "Whether your flying sorties halfway around the world, or going head-to-head with a friend in a helicopter battle, 'Aero Elite: Combat Academy' will not disappoint flight fans."

"Aero Elite: Combat Academy" is rated "T" for Teen and is available at retailers nationwide for an MSRP of $49.95.


"SEGA RALLY" puts gamers in the driver seat of fully-licensed cars from the sport's top manufacturers including Subaru, Ford, Toyota, Lancia, Peugeot, and Mitsubishi. Gamers will race around the globe on all-new courses to win the Championship Cup, enduring grueling conditions that range from muddy jungles to dune-filled desserts. On their quest for the title, racers will earn points to purchase multiple mini-games, new courses, secret cars, and a "SEGA RALLY" history and art gallery. "SEGA RALLY" also features an all-new 4 Player mode that lets gamers go head-to-head-to-head-to-head for the first time outside of the arcade.

"It's not easy to pack all of the white-knuckled, dune-jumping, tire-squealing action of 'SEGA RALLY' into the palm of your hand, but we managed to do just that," said Mike Fischer, vice president of marketing, SEGA of America, Inc. "Most people have never had an opportunity to race across the Sahara against four of their closest friends...until now, thanks to 'SEGA RALLY's' addictive 4-player mode for the Game Boy Advance."

"SEGA RALLY" is rated "E" for Everyone and is available at retailers nationwide for an MSRP of $29.99.
