F-Zero: GP Legend and Castlevania Aria of Sorrow Virtual Console bound

by Daniel VuckovicMarch 28, 2014

The Australia Classification board has revealed two more Game Boy Advance games heading to the Wii U Virtual Console.

Both Nintendo’s F-Zero: GP Legend and Konami’s Castlevania Aria of Sorrow were both classified today paving the way for their eventually release some time in the future. With the April schedule basically full it’s likely we will see these games in May.

F-Zero: GP Legend has never been released in Australia before this, it was the second F-Zero game on the Game Boy Advance and based on the anime series of the same name. Castlevania Aria of Sorrow while not the best Castlevania game on the Game Boy Advance is an extremely well made game.

It shouldn’t just be Aussies who are excited either, this means the rest of the world at some point will be getting these games too. I mean when did Australia get anything exclusively?

    In terms of exclusives, we have had an Australian exclusive version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? on GBA, NRL and AFL mascot games on DS (I forget their names, but they had quickly succumbed to the bargain bin) and an Australian edition of U-Sing 2 on Wii which included songs by Australian artists (other editions were released elsewhere in Europe, with exclusive songs specific to each country, be it France, Germany etc.). I’m sure there are others, though I very much doubt that there would be many of them.

    Oh, and those AFL/NRL simulation games, however, those are scarcely released on Nintendo systems.

    “Castlevania Aria of Sorrow while not the best Castlevania game on the Game Boy Advance is an extremely well made game.”

    Those are fighting words. It’s almost universally accepted as the best Castlevania for the GBA. Circle of the Moon was good too, but I can not see how anyone would not put AoS first – (harmony of dissonance should be last).

    Shitting on Aria of Sorrow is a sure way to lose your cred! Better than Circle of the Moon which was better than Harmony of Dissonance, AoS is the best GBA Castlevania game by far (mostly because CotM was near impossible to fucking see before the SP came out). I’d even put AoS above Dawn of Sorrow on the DS.

    Fighting words indeed!
