Medarot G Heads To The Japanese Wii U Virtual Console

7 10 2015


Nintendo and Rocket Company have announced that Medarot G will be released on the Wii U eShop on October 14th. The game will cost 702 yen and will be sold in both Kabuto and Kuwagata versions.

Medarot G originally launched in July 2002 on the Gameboy Advance. The game acts as a followup to Medarot 5 with a combat system recycled from Medabots AX. That means players are put in a 2D fighting game rather than the traditional RPG setup. G features 37 Medarot, 7 of which were created exclusively for the game.

Natsume plans on releasing Medabots AX on the western Virtual Consoles sometime soon.
