WayForward shared some surprise news at this year’s Anime Expo panel, revealing a sci-fi adventure title for the Game Boy Advance. The Story of Sigma Star will return on a “modern platform” in 2025.

The 2005/06 fan-favorite shmup/RPG will also be available as a Game Boy Advance “repro cart” next year. The title, originally licensed by Bandai Namco, will be powered by Limited Run Games’ Carbon Engine. Further details including specific platforms and release dates will be provided in the future.

Here’s some PR info along with some footage of the GBA release:

Featuring a unique blend of top-down planetary exploration and side-scrolling shooter space battles, Sigma Star Saga puts you in the shoes of Allied Earth Federation pilot Ian Recker, who infiltrates the alien Krill Empire as a double agent in a last-ditch effort to save humanity from their onslaught. To do so, you must team up with both humans and Krill, explore six planets using an ever-expanding set of tools and abilities, and hop into the cockpit to engage enemy forces in intense shmup-style combat using over 70 different Gun Data items. Stunning pixel-art graphics, epic boss battles, and a story full of surprises with multiple endings await.

Additional details about Sigma Star Saga, including platform availability and physical edition news, will be shared in the months leading up to the game’s launch.
