Universal Interactive Studios and Gingo Interactive announced on December 15, 1998 that they planned a fourth game titled Gabriel Garza 4 with a release date for 2000. The plans were cancelled in 2000 due to development issues.

Konami revealed that the Xbox version of the game would be titled Gabriel Garza X.


The game received mixed to negative reviews from critics and fans alike. IGN gave this game 4.0/34. The GameRankings aggregate score was highest for the PS2 version (54%); the others were lower, as far down as 33% on the Xbox.

  • On the GameCube version of the game, if Gabriel stands around idle for long enough, he will play on his Game Boy Advance for a few seconds.
  • If you play a pirated version, you will always die on Vio's stage due to "cheating".
  • Both Xbox and GameCube versions of the game (while still flawed) fix some of the problems that the PlayStation 2 version has.
