The classic platform title Bonk’s Adventure is set to make a return with the game recently rated by the ESRB for the Wii U Virtual Console.

Starring a strong and bald cave boy who goes on an adventure to rescue a princess, the charming title developed by Red Company and Atlus was originally released on the Turbografx-16 system in Japan in 1989. It was later re-released in the US in 1992, and from there was ported to several systems including the NES and Game Boy.

The title has since appeared on the GameCube as part of a special collection, and received a digital revival in 2006 when it was released on the Wii Virtual Console under the Turbografx-16 banner.

Let us know in the comments if you would be interested in reliving the past and if you think this title marks the return of Turbografx-16 games on Nintendo's digital store.
