Aero The Acro-bat Swinging On To Wii

During the ancient age of anthropomorphic mascot platformers, Sunsoft released Aero the Acro-bat. Aero, a bat, runs, jumps, and tornado jumps through circus themed levels.

More memorable than the game was its advertising campaign. A two page magazine ad explained Aero’s story, something about saving a circus, and had a hidden giveaway. The first fifty people that mailed Sunsoft would get a free copy of the game for actually reading the ad.

 

Maybe Sunsoft will think of something equally creative when Aero the Acro-bat is re-released on Virtual Console. Australia’s OFLC just rated it as a Wii game with Nintendo as the publisher. Will Aero the Acro-bat be Sunsoft’s next release? Not so fast. We also found a rating for Ufouria, a NES game only released in Europe and Japan, inside the OFLC.
