"We have extremely fond memories of the game, and we look forward to bringing it to a new generation of players."

"Rock N' Roll Racing" puts players behind the wheel in an over-the-top demolition-racing experience. In the game, drivers take their pick from a variety of cars, each equipped with a selection of weaponry designed to help them outmaneuver and annihilate the competition in the most unrealistic racing game ever.

Players will be able to race on six radically different planets against the top demolition racers from across the galaxy -- all while cruising to a classic rocking soundtrack. Taking advantage of the Game Boy Advance Game Link(R) cable, players can even go head-to-head against each other for fast-paced multiplayer action.

"Rock N' Roll Racing" is available at retail chains nationwide for the Game Boy(R) Advance, at a price of approximately $29.99. The game is also offered directly through Blizzard at 800/953-SNOW or
