GameCube-GBA-Link-Cable

The Game Boy Advance to Nintendo GameCube Link Cable is a link cable that allows your GameCube and Game Boy Advance to interact. This allowed many innovations, such as  in multiplayer games, having your own private screen with your items, or something else you don't want to announce. This accessory has become quite popular, and you can find a plethora of games that support it.
