Kuru Kuru Kururin Coming to US Virtual Console

In the early part of the new millennium, the Game Boy Advance was that thing that every kid of a certain age (like my age, 15/16 at the time) was ready and drooling for. With the promises of a large launch line-up came some disappointment, as magazines could only speculate over what was likely to come and what was unlikely, which meant we were given some false hopes along the way about games that, in reality, would never come to the US market.

And as if they’d seen such a market clamoring in the future for such games, Nintendo has plenty to tap into, like recently-rediscovered and VC-ready Kuru Kuru Kururin: a cutesy game that looks harmless (like Kirby’s Adventure) but makes you question life choices (like Irritating Stick).

 

It’s likely released by the time you read this—official Wii U release is February 11th—but it begs the question of what else they should look into and release here? If there's anything you’d love to see localized, or even released fully in Japanese, through the Virtual Console that hasn’t made it yet?

(My vote is still for the only Miyamoto game still not officially released in the US, Devil World, but that could just be me.)
