Question Where is GBA Speedball 2?

I cant find this game ANYWHERE! (UK) Ive been into my local GAME store and they say 'Its been released but weve sold out'. Ive been to two other retailers and they say 'Its not out yet, and its not on our 'soon to be released' lists either'.
Can someone please confirm that this game is actually out? and does anyone know if GAME has some kinda deal to release it before everyone else? or are they full of it?

  :
  : Designed by the legendary Bitmap Brothers, the "advanced" incarnation of
  : Speedball II will be based on the original, award-winning Sega MegaDrive
  : and Commodore Amiga versions. A muscled, heavily armoured giant amongst
  : the traditional vest and shorts sports sims, Speedball II: Brutal Deluxe
  : offers fast-paced gaming with very few rules. Blending violence and
  : spectacular arcade action, players can take control of a team desperate
  : to win the Speedball championship. Train up your team, increasing the
  : abilities of your metal-clad bruisers. Perfect your tactics--elbow the
  : opposing defenders, turn the tide of the game with a power-up, use the
  : arena to gain an advantage. Fight and play your way through league,
  : knockout and cup competitions in search of Speedball glory. While this
  : new version of Speedball II: Brutal Deluxe is based on the 1980
  : original, a range of enhancements are planned for the Game Boy Advance.
  : While graphics and gameplay will stay faithful to the original, other
  : features include multiple teams, players and personalities, additional
  : gameplay modes, and a four-player link up mode.

@RCK
I tried getting the emulator from that link, but it wont download.
Is there a prob with the site or is it my heap o' junk PC?

I do own a GBA so having the emulator would be an excellent way to try before I buy.

Tried disabling my firewall and still no luck. It says 'Transferring document' and s-l-o-w-l-y crawls up to 39% and goes no further. I tried downloading something small from the zone aswell and it does the same thing!
You think its an IE 5 problem? because It never used to be like this, I used to be able to download everything!

it may not be your IE fault... but simply your shitty internet connection
use one download manager program like http://www.flashget.com or http://www.netvampire.com/ for all your files transfert. (you will be able to resume your download)
