ToT never had a GC version (unless you don't mean GameCube, my apologies then).
They did start pumping the games out after a while, but before, it as a bit of a wait for one. I'm glad for it though. It was just a shame that we got so many portable titles and only two home console titles.
I'm looking forward to this title being localized, and I can't help but wonder what the preorder bonus for it will be~. That's almost as exciting as getting the game itself.
