North American Game Boy Advance USA-1 games list


Recommended Posts

All of the main regions had GBA games with revisions, I haven't had the chance to catalogue the PAL [EUR-1, FRA-1, etc.] or NTSC-J [JPN-1] games (and probably will never get around to a full list), but I have what I believe is a (or very close to) complete NTSC USA-1 revision list. These were most often done when publishers changed but also to fix glitches or other minor changes. Most, if not all, revisions also replaced the original "Official Nintendo Seal of Quality" text with "Official Nintendo Seal."

The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius - Jet Fusion (?)
Animal Snap (AIA --> Ignition)
ATV: Quad Power Racing (?)
Backyard Hockey (?)
Demon Diver (AIA --> Ignition)
Dexter's Laboratory: Deesaster Strikes (fixed unwinnable glitch)
Ed, Edd n Eddy: Jawbreakers! (?)
Hot Wheels: Velocity X (?)
IK+ (AIA --> Ignition)
Kelly Slater's Pro Surfer (Activision O₂ --> Activision)
Konami Krazy Racers (?)
Mat Hoffman's Pro BMX (Activision O₂ --> Activision)
Mat Hoffman's Pro BMX 2 (Activision O₂ --> Activision)
Midway's Greatest Arcade Hits (Midway --> Majesco)
Monster Bass Fishing (AIA --> Ignition)
Nickelodeon: 4 Games on One Game Pak (replaced one of the four games, Fairly OddParents: Shadow Showdown with Fairly OddParents: Enter the Cleft)
Pinball Tycoon (AIA --> Ignition)
Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (TDK Mediactive --> Global Star Software) 
The Powerpuff Girls: Mojo Jojo-a-Go-Go (?)
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (?)
Rocket Power: Dream Scheme (?)
The Sims: Bustin' Out (1473117 on label, further meaning unknown)
Shaun Palmer's Pro Snowboarder (Activision O₂ --> Activision)
SpongeBob SquarePants: Revenge of the Flying Dutchman (?)
Spyro: Season of Ice (Children's Software Rerelease)
Stadium Games (AIA --> Ignition
Strike Force Hydra (AIA --> Ignition)
Super Drop Zone (AIA --> Ignition)
Tetris Worlds (changed box art, title screen)
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 (Activision O₂ --> Activision)
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 (Activision O₂ --> Activision)
Top Gun: Firestorm Advance (Titus --> Mastiff)
The Wild Thornberrys Movie (?)
World Tennis Stars (AIA --> Ignition)

Generally, it seems that the revisions had smaller print runs, but that wasn't always the case. It's said that Dexter was a mail-in exclusive, but I'd have to imagine any versions still on store shelves would've been replaced as well. Konami Krazy Racers seems like it had a much lower print run. I'm not to sure what the revisions for Ed, Edd n Eddy, KKR, Powerpuff Girls, or any of the other games with a '(?)' next to them updated, so if anybody else knows I'll update the list.

If there are any more that are missing from this list, feel free to correct me and I'll fix the list as well.

Took a bit, but all added!

The Wild Thornberrys Movie had a revision, though I'm not really sure what (if anything) was changed. Maybe they fixed a glitch or something? The cartridge's Nintendo Seals are different (original says "Official Seal of Quality" while the revision says "Official Seal"). I couldn't find any differences in the boxes myself.



There was also a Top Gun: Firestorm Advance revision as well. According to this article from 2004 they did another run of the game but with a different publisher (Titus handled the original and Mastiff handled the revision). The boxes and manuals in this case were revised too of course. The Nintendo Seal design changed in the same way as the Wild Thronberrys.



Backyard Hockey also had a revision but I have no clue why.

Updated, I checked eBay and none of the currently listed or sold listings had a Corvette cart that had USA-1 on it. I saw a few GS boxes that had the regular USA cart, so it's possible that they didn't bother updating the cart. If I come across one though, I'll add it to the list.
