Castlevania Aria of Sorrow and F-Zero GP Legend re-releases rated

Australian listings point to upcoming Wii U Virtual Console titles

GameBoy Advance titles Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow and F-Zero: GP Legend may be headed to Wii U Virtual Console.

The Australian Classification Board outed both titles as having received classification on March 27. Though the board does not include release platforms, both games have Nintendo listed as publisher.


Nintendo has so far revealed eight GBA titles set for release on Wii U, starting with Advance Wars, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and Metroid Fusion on April 3.

Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow was originally published by Konami in 2003. Its Symphony of the Night-inspired gameplay, produced by the recently departed Koji Igarashi, was well-received by critics and international fans alike.

F-Zero: GP Legend released in Europe and North America in 2004 and was based on the anime series of the same name. It's the last F-Zero title to be released internationally and the second to last in Japan.

The Australian Classification Board indicated in February that Namco GBA titles Mr Driller 2 and Klonoa: Empire of Dreams were set for re-release with serving as publisher. The platform holder has yet to announce either game.
