One of the major video game retailers has finally gotten a listing for Prophecy Advance. EB's website has a listing for January 23, 2003 (ship date). You can check it out for yourself here. This is the first we've seen about a 2003 release. Hopefully the date will change and it'll move up a bit to match earlier expectations. Kaybee has also updated its Prophecy listing with a delay to December 17.
Wing Commander Prophecy gives you unequaled visual excitement with these new features: a new space combat engine, a new terrifying alien menace, and new spectacular graphics and soundtrack. With return appearances by Blair, Maniac, and Rachel, Wing Commander Prophecy opens a new trilogy in the Wing Commander universe packing more punch than any other space combat game out there. Wing Commander Prophecy is the ultimate in sci-fi combat simulations. Blast into the future today!
Note that this was one of the old Prophecy preview paragraphs, and decisions on future Wing Commander games for the GBA are not yet final. First person to report on the listing of the game at GameStop wins a cookie!
