New imports toddling onto American Virtual Console

Early last month, we found OFLC listings for two import games: Gley Lancer, which has since been released in Europe and Australia, and Bio Miracle Bokutte Upa. A release of the obscure platformer anywhere outside of Japan seemed incongruous enough, but now, bafflingly, it's planned for a North American release as well, though there's no guarantee it'll show up any time soon. Bio Miracle Bokutte Upa, in case (for some reason) you aren't familiar with it, is a Famicom Disk System platformer starring a baby with a rattle.

Both Gley Lancer and Bio Miracle Bokutte Upa are now rated by the ESRB, along with non-imports City Connection and Alex Kidd in Miracle World. Unfortunately, there's no sign of Gley Lancer's Hanabi Festival cohorts like Gradius II, Star Parodier, and Cho Aniki.
