Australian Classification Board Rates Xtreme Sports for 3DS Virtual Console
Posted by Jake Shapiro
The WayForward Game Boy Color classic appears headed to the eShop
It looks like one of WayForward Technologies' early classics will be arriving on the 3DS Virtual Console in the near future. The Australian Classification Board has rated Xtreme Sports, published by Infogrames in 2000 on the Game Boy Color exclusively in North America. Europe would eventually get a version of the game on Dreamcast known as Sega Extreme Sports and a PC port called Pepsi Max Extreme Sports, but a Virtual Console release would be the first time the GBC original is available outside North America. The game has a G rating for "very mild themes and violence."
As its name suggests, Xtreme Sports is a collection of games based on extreme sports like skateboarding, surfing, inline skating, street luge, and skyboarding. This would mark the second WayForward title to hit the 3DS Virtual Console, after its Game Boy cult classic Shantae. Today, WayForward is best known for downloadable titles such as Mighty Switch Force! and DuckTales: Remastered, with Shantae And The Pirate's Curse on the way to the 3DS eShop.
