Kuru Kuru Kururin was one of the GBA’s best action-puzzle games – and it went completely under the radar due to its import-only nature. In it, you spun a little helicopter blade around and your goal was to not hit the walls. You could take a couple of hits, but would need to replenish your health mid-level with a checkpoint and then hope to make it to the end of the stage. It was challenging, but well-crafted and remained a darling of GBA owners for years. Sequels came out for both the GBA and GameCube, but no entry in the series ever saw a North American release.
Luckily, Nintendo has set out to rectify this with the announcement that they will be releasing the game on the Wii U’s virtual console. What’s better is that it’s coming out on February 11 – meaning that players won’t have to wait very long to enjoy the game. With a $6.99 price tag, it’s in line with other GBA games on the service, and will benefit a lot from the save state functionality offered up by the Virtual Console as well.
