ESRB

An interesting rating for Pokemon Rumble World popped up on the ESRB. This is a new, recent listing with an actual description of the game. The original rating is located here.

It doesn’t make much sense to re-rate a game that came out close to a year ago. Perhaps Nintendo has plans to bring the retail version of Pokemon Rumble World to North America much like Europe and Japan? That would make sense, since it would explain the new rating as well as why it’s accompanied by a description (downloadable games usually don’t have one whereas retail titles do).

A Wii U rating for the first Super Mario Galaxy has appeared on the ESRB. Based on that information, we could be seeing an eShop release soon as a Wii download.

Wii U owners in Japan have had access to Super Mario Galaxy since late May. While the second entry is out in all territories, the original one has yet to come west.

The International Age Rating Coalition is something that we’ve previously spoken about. This system, which is already live on the likes of Google Play and the Firefox Marketplace, allows developers to collect ratings for various territories at no cost. Rather than having to submit games to different classification boards such as the ESRB (U.S.), PEGI (UK), and USK (Germany), they’re only sent in once, and you receive different ratings in return.

Renegade Kid co-founder Jools Watsham was recently advised by his source that he should have Dementium Remastered rated through the IARC system, and that it’s coming “very soon”. Based on that information, it seems as though the system will be up sooner rather than later – likely weeks instead of months.

New Super Mario Bros. could be coming to the Wii U Virtual Console soon. A rating for the game popped up on the ESRB, which usually signals that a release is on the horizon. It wouldn’t be too surprising to see New Super Mario Bros. on the eShop this Thursday, though we’ll have to wait for the latest Nintendo Download report to see what’s heading to the VC.

Three more Virtual Console titles have been rated for release in North America. On Wii U, we can look forward to Mario Party Advance and Super Mario World: Super Mario Advance 2. The ESRB also rated Super Mario Bros. Deluxe for 3DS.

It’s currently unclear when exactly all of these retro titles will be launching. Given their ratings though, this could be a sign that they’ll be available in the near future.
