Motorola and Nintendo have announced a joint venture that will enable wireless, multi-player, portable gaming for up to five people over a radio frequency (RF) link. Motorola's high-speed, low-power 2.4GHz radio frequency chipset will be used in an adapter accessory for Nintendo's Game Boy Advance and is expected to be released in Japan in the first half of 2004.

The chipset contains a 32-bit RISC architecture baseband processor and an RF transceiver, offering robust performance, a high-speed data rate, low power consumption and a long battery life for extended game play according to Motorola.

The Game Boy Advance wireless adapter will be released with two new Pokemon games in Japan next year.
