USK Rated: International Karate+ and Cybernoid for C64

Some good news for Commodore 64 fans today. Two aging classics have been rated by the German ratings organisation, the USK, so we expect them to be on the Virtual Console in due course.

International Karate+, or IK+ to its friends is rather obviously the sequel to International Karate which is also on the VC. It was released almost a year and a half after the original in 1987. IK+ also features a two player option, but this time there are several new moves and a third CPU controlled player can enter the fray. Any self respecting Commodore geek or otaku will snap this up with it hits the VC.

Cybernoid is an rather unique take on the shoot-em-up genre as it blends exploration into the mix. Tackling each level involves meeting a time limit and collecting a set minimum amount of stolen cargo. You can’t rest on your laurels for too long with this one. Fondly remembered by C64 fans this will also be a welcome addition to the VC.

Gamers in North America and Australia need not apply.
