Ogre Battle Marching On Our Virtual Console

image Japan’s Virtual Console lists are usually clues to what games are coming in the near future. This is one of the reasons why we spend time translating them. Ogre Battle: The March of the Black Queen was released there in November – a good sign that it was coming over here too. Today, the ESRB confirmed what we suspected by giving Ogre Battle: The March of the Black Queen a “E” rating as a Wii game.


Meanwhile, the ESRB game Secret of Mana has an E10+ rating. Why isn’t it for “everyone”? According to their rating summary, “one flying ‘book enemy’ opens up to a page that looks like a centerfold picture of a woman but without any detail shown.” Ah… the infamous mystic book enemy.

    Ugh. Every mention of this is like a knife stuck into my heart. My favorite console series, killed by Squenix.

  • Now I’m just gonna pray for an EU release as I FINALLY got a Wii.
