Electronic Arts announced it has expanded its popular James Bond franchise to the Game Boy Color platform — the first licensed Bond title for the portable platform — with the release of The World is Not Enough for Game Boy Color.
Based on MGM's successful movie with the same title, the video game is a third-person-perspective arcade action title that places the player in the role of Bond. The game is said to closely follow the movie's story line, while remaining true to the Bond legacy.
Characters from the movie are featured, including Dr. Christmas Jones, M and Renard. Each of the movie-based arenas and levels will contain a challenging mission and objectives. Mission accomplishments require the utilization of an array of Q-lab weapons and gadgets such as electro-proof boots that protect the wearer from electrical damage.
