Kuru Kuru Kururin Makes Its North American Debut On The Nintendo Wii U Virtual Console

Recommended Videos


The Nintendo Wii U Virtual Console is getting its first import game. Kuru Kuru Kururin was a Game Boy Advance game that was originally released in Japan, Europe, and Australia. In it, players have to help a bird named Kururin rescue and reunite his family. This means navigating his Helirin, a constantly moving stick-shaped vehicle, through mazes and past obstacles.


Kuru Kuru Kururin has two modes, an Adventure Mode with 10 worlds, where people can rescue Kururin’s siblings and customize the Helirin, and a Challenge mode, with smaller levels and specific objectives. There’s an Easy Mode available, which shrinks the size of the Helirin, and three different speed levels, for people worried about the difficulty.


You can immediately find Kuru Kuru Kururin on the Nintendo Wii U’s eShop for $6.99. It is entirely in English, so there’s no language barrier.
