It pays to pester

It looks like the cherished N64 shooter Sin & Punishment could finally be making an appearance outside of Japan, via the Wii’s Virtual Console.

Not only has it been listed as one of the upcoming releases on the Japanese Virtual Console schedule, but according to numerous Nintendo sites, Australia’s rating board – the OFLC – has just given it an M (Mature) rating. Australia is, of course, a PAL territory.

Nintendo once said that Virtual Console releases would be limited to games that had an original release in the territory, but if the above is true then it means that they’ve gone back on their word. Which isn’t a bad thing.
