"ChuChu Rocket!" Coming to Wii U Virtual Console in Japan

Port of Game Boy Advance version of classic Dreamcast game will be released on October 21, 2015


ChuChu Rocket!, an action-puzzle game originally released for the Sega Dreamcast in 1999, is being re-released for the Nintendo Wii U Virtual Console in Japan. The game retails for 702 yen ($5.88 US) including tax and will be available beginning on October 21, 2015. This release is a port of the Game Boy Advance version of the game.



The goal of ChuChu Rocket! is to manuever the mice-like ChuChus to safety aboard their rocket while avoiding the cat-like KapuKapus. Although the Japanese home page lists this version of ChuChu Rocket as single-player, the game does include a "4 Player Battle" multi-player mode.


No plans for an English language version of this release have presently been announced.
