An Australian Classification rating
for the 1992 NES urban olympics title Crash 'n the Boys: Street Challenge
has surfaced, hinting at an upcoming release for the Wii U's Virtual Console
Notably, Crash 'n the Boys
is part of the same series as developer Technos' River City Ransom
, a cult classic that ranks as an all-time favorite among many NES fans. While it arrived at retail late in the NES's lifespan and never gained much of a following, Street Challenge
's appearance on the Wii U could potentially be followed by Virtual Console upgrades for Super Dodge Ball, Double Dragon
, and other well-remembered titles from Technos' back catalog.
Crash 'n the Boys
is rated PG for "mild violence" – a generous classification, as the game includes a swimming minigame in which players attempt to drown their opponents
. Joystiq's David Hinkle took the game for a spin
back when it first launched for the Wii's Virtual Console, calling it "fun, but tiring."
