Should Actraiser 1 & 2 have been re-released for Game Boy Advance?


When it comes down to cool SNES titles from the early 90’s there are some who think about  the Actraiser series  While Actraiser 1 & 2 were very unique games that stood out on the 16 bit SNES console in the early 90’s for  whatever reason neither game was ever ported for the Game Boy Advance.  There were so many cool things about the original Actraiser game including the storyline along  use of Mode 7 and the side-scrolling gameplay that players partake in through the game.  Also, back in the day and even now it quite rare that we see video games that are in city building simulation and platform genre simulation.

Back in the 90’s Actraiser 1 & 2 felt like they were both ahead of their time and they are often seen as games that are considered to be hidden gems for the SNES.   In terms of whether or not Actraiser 1 & 2 would have done great in sales on the GBA is questionable but they were definitely games that should have been re-released in some type of capacity if not for the Game Boy Advance then possibly for GameCube or even PS2.
