Bio Miracle Bokutte Upa is coming for US Virtual Console

If you had not heard of the game Bio Miracle Bokutte Upa before don’t feel bad. It is a platformer for the Famicom Disc System which has never seen a release outside of Japan. It stars a baby with a rattle, which probably would not have appealed to anyone in the US anyway, however it is a classic platformer so we should at least care right? Bad news is while the game might have been announced for a release on the US Virtual Console, there is absolutely no word on when the game will actually appear on the service for download. 

Alex Kidd in Miracle World was also rated by the ESRB along with Bio Miracle Bokutte Upa as a future release for the Virtual Console as well.
