Two months ago we reported the GP32 handheld console was coming to Europe. We reported several times about this console, since there is a working MSX Emulator for GP32 and several games that originated on the MSX like Raphael (Castle Excellent) and Princess Maker 2. This week Lik-Sang let their visitors know the GamePark will not be officially released in Europe after all. After the release date of the GP32 in Europe had been postpned several times, Mitsui and GamePark ended up in a disagreement that lead to this desicion. Although things still look quite well for GamePark it's a shame that this deal has bounced off. Supposedly about 260.000 GP32's were to be produced for the European market. For now, the best way to get a GP32 and related products in Europe is ordering them in online shops. Strangely, the GP32 Europe website, registered by Mitsui is still online.

About this, a spanish videogames website says that gp32 distributor on spain is going to be virgin, and virgin said that he wont stop the gp32 release on spain, so it will be released here next year (on march or april I think), later I will try to find the url and post it here.
