    I don't know. I know it was released today alongside Dig Dug and both had a Japanese flag next to them. I thought it was another translated game like that Sin N64 game.

    Sorry -- I didn't use sarcasm right [​IMG].

    I meant -- the language says english, but the boxart is in Japanese.

    It's a Platformer, I don't think they bother translating text in a Platformer.

    The region is listed as USA...? It's JPN, right?

    No, it was released on the virtual console today in the US. The game was never brought to America until today, so the Japanese boxart is all there is.

    Oh my....

    This game came out on the NES yeaaaars ago (1988), and was due to come out in America, but was banned for obvious reasons!!

    You play a baby out to rescue other babies from some demons of some sort. You go around a world filled with Sweets/cakes etc, chomping your way through as a baby, and hitting enemies with your rattle/bottle. You can get a power up that makes your character UPA the baby standup and run about all trippy :-/

    It was banned, not only for the content, but also because it conflicted with the release of the Mario games in the US.

    Why does it have the heading "Wii" now? Shouldn't it be VC?

    When I edit a release, it changes back to Wii. This is something that still needs to be fixed.

    One of the longest times between a US and Japan release was the original unmodified Super Mario Bros 2. Took slightly over 21 years from its FDS version to the US VC.

    How about Lost levels, that one was on allstars....

    well, thinking about it, that one was modified, but it still was the same game....

    This is a very good platformer, every fan of the NES should try it:

    World 1-2 really gives me a Dig Dug vibe. XD
