Natsume released the next in a series of Game Boy Advance titles on the Wii U Virtual Console. Pocky & Rocky with Becky, an arcade-style action title, launches today in both North America and Europe on the Wii U Virtual Console, nearly thirteen years to the day of its original launch in North America.
“When we originally announced that we would be bringing eight of our GBA titles to Virtual Console, fans began excitingly guessing which ones they might be,” said Hiro Maekawa, President and CEO of Natsume Inc. “With so many fans asking for a classic like Pocky & Rocky with Becky, we knew we had to make it happen!”
Play as Pocky, Rocky, or Becky in a frenetic, Eastern themed arcade-style classic. Each character has a unique power-up that players will need to master to tackle numerous terrifying bosses. You’ll have a mere three lives to make it through challenging levels, so be careful!
Natsume has already released Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town and Car Battler Joe in North America, as well as Medabots Rokushu and Metabee in Europe, with the Medabots games arriving in North America later this year. Harvest Moon: More Friends of Mineral Town will also be arriving in North America in the coming months.
