Lufia And Darius Twin Coming To Virtual Console?


imageSince Taito games have rights split among different publishers few have been released on Virtual Console in North America. But, maybe, just maybe, we’ll get Lufia & The Fortress of Doom and Lufia II: Rise of the Sinistrals.


Out of the blue, Taito trademarked a bunch of Super Nintendo titles. Darius Twin, Lufia & The Fortress of Doom, and Lufia II: Rise of the Sinistrals we’re filed in the USPTO. Darius Twin is available as a Virtual Console download in Japan, but both Lufia (Estpolis Denki) titles aren’t.


Taito trademarked these game names for a reason, probably because they’re going to be re-released somewhere. Virtual Console seems like a good bet since it wouldn’t require any extra work on Taito’s part, plus the Wii could use a few more RPG epics, even classic ones, in North America.
