We knew that Hudson planned to release the import Gradius II GOFER no Yabou and Digital Champ Battle Boxing (that's Battle Boxing, instead of all those non-battle boxing games) in October, but it turns out they've picked the earliest possible time in October to do it, which happens to be next Monday. Along with the announcement, the info pages for both Gradius II and Digital Champ are available. This is the second set of imports in a row for Hudson, as well as the second set of imports to be released as a pair.

Keeping in mind the obligatory disclaimer that Nintendo may decide at any moment to apply their veto power and just put up MaBoShi or something, we're tentatively excited. We aren't sure if this is a good time or a bad time to put out a boxing game, though.
